I saw the article in my latest issue of MAKE about using a disposable digital camera and a 555 timer circuit to take pictures. I am currently working with a group to put a payload on a weather balloon and I want to hook up a disposable digital camera (similar to the one in the article). I figured out what contacts I need to short in order to turn on the camera and take a picture but for the life of me I cannot seem to get the example
circuit to work.
The launch is on the 30th (have to rush it because funding didn't go through) Any help would be great.
