DIY Timecode Slate? Anyone know where I can find a circuit board?
I'm looking at the possibility of making my own SMPTE Timecode slate, but I'm wondering if anyone knows who sells the boards for these things? I think I have the rest figured out and sourced, it's just a matter of finding someone who makes the electronics. If anyone knows, I would appreciate it.

This may be of SOME help?

I'd love to have one of these too. Just curious how it connects to the camera?

The software/ hardware seems pretty bullet proof at the moment, as I have tried to keep it simple as possible. I'm working on the high brightness LED version at the moment, well, when the parts arrive, hopefully today, and I may have a stripboard version working by this easter monday.

I have put a couple of very bad videos of the hand wired versions here

A bit on update
Done a hardware upgrade on my messy test rig

I've been working very long hours on my little project, and probably have an answer/solution for you.
http://es.geocities.com/mart_in_medina/WiP5.html The site is a bit rough and ready, but I think I hope you can get the basic info from it

I sort of update it daily, so the datasheet is a bit out of date, by at least 3 days

Hope this helps

need sleep,
bye for now
