Open Source Wireless Trigger

After getting back into photography after many many years (and because Digital SLRs are so much cheaper)  I’ve been an avid follower of the stobist website (www.strobist.com) for off camera lighting.  To do this off camera lighting you need a way of triggering the remote stobes, some are wired, some are either RF or Infrared, but obviously the easiest is via .  Well there are many solutions, some cheap (ebay triggers) some expensive (Pocket wizards) and you get what you pay for, the cheaper ones (of which I one a couple) are notorious for false triggers, while the Pocket wizards are way out of my price range.

So in the true spirit of Open Source, of which I’m a huge fan, I’ve proposed an open source wireless for the community.  Initial thread found here – www.flickr.com/groups/strobist/discuss/72157602088957861/  So far the response has been great fantastic.

 I’ve now setup a wiki for a brain dump of http://wiki.everythingrobotics.com and will shortly have a mailing list up and running.

  are now also up and running http://forums.everythingrobotics.com  hopefully these will eventually fall under the strobist.com domain
