Time lapse controller for point and shoot camera

This is my first YouTube video! It took me a very long time to get this video published, about 6 months. I was (still am) very nervous about how I looked and sounded on video. I was worried about the equipment I was using, how well my shots were, and what the comments might say. I was stuck in an infinite cycle of  “Over-analysis paralysis”. The only cure for this condition is to push forward knowing it won’t be perfect, it may not even be good, but, it will be a learning experience.

In this video, we will learn about Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) and controlling these digital signals to create a time lapse camera. I’ll show you from start to finish how I built this project including, how I program the PWM using a microcontroller and C code.
