OK so this is regarding the continuous w/ synchronized flash circuit
linked by Microfunguy and others that is supposedly designed by Dr. Damir Vran?i? (of 3D LanC Master
Anyway, it could really use a switching boost converter circuit on-board, since some people have had trouble triggering certain cameras with ~3V. But also, this would then allow the circuit to provide +5V from a single AA/AAA NiMH cell, as 3V lithiums are expensive and single-use.
There are of course many ways this could be implemented, even linear vs. switching as it's a low-current application, so what's the criteria? Cost? Ease of use (eg. avoid humans soldering SMTs and cussing)
? Lowest external component count? Etc.
I am an amateur engineer at best, and a bloody hack who messes everything up at my worst.
So, is there someone better qualified I should send my suggestion to, or a more appropriate place to voice this?
