It’s been pretty quiet around Triggertrap v1 and our Triggertrap Shield for Arduino – but that doesn’t mean that stuff isn’t happening in the background! Today, we’re announcing that we’ve released a brand new firmware update for both devices, bringing the version number up to version 0.3.36Read More
For information to build your own, we’ve created an extensive user guide which will help you identify all the parts, and an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide to building your own Triggertrap Shield:Assembling your Triggertrap Shield
Please note that we don’t have the capacity to help people with individual assembly problems with the Triggertrap Shield; It’s not hard to build one, but if you order one, it’s useful if you have enough electronics skills to troubleshoot any troubles you run into.
Nonetheless, if you do run into issues, try our community help pages; it might be that your question has been asked (and answered!) before, or that someone knows the answer.Get some help!
To build your Triggertrap, you’ll need:
- Your Triggertrap Shield kit
- Soldering tin
- Soldering iron
- An ATMega328-based Arduino
- A camera connection cable
For the build itself, some small pliers would be useful as well, along with a desoldering device.What cable do I need?
The Triggertrap v1 and Triggertrap Shield for Arduino are both open-source – to find out more, check out our licencing and open source page. Iver there, you’ll find the links to the source code and answers to any other questions you might have!I want my C++!

As part of our Kickstarter campaign, we promised that the Triggertrap Shield and Triggertrap v1 would be as ‘open’ as we could make them. In practice, this meant that the source code and the schematics would be completely open source. We’re really sorry it has taken us this long to release the schematics; we meant […]Read More
Wow, this one has been a very long time coming, and is the final Kickstarter reward to go out the door.
