I have build the first openSX70 prototype. Even though I had tested the flash something (I don’t know if it’s a design flaw) is not working.
I connected the flat cable and breakout board so a cable can easily connect and then the USB FTDI adapter.
The adaptor will not be needed for normal use and it is only there for development purposes.
I did my first tryp with the openSX70 prototype… with mixed results. I tried to store in non-volatile memory each of the pictures information (singularly exposure time and the lux value read by the BH1750) After the “lollipop” and the filter, even in the middle possition it does not get much light. I used expired TIP film. I am going to try to do this much more scientifically, but I really really wanted to go out with the camera and shoot. Sometimes I underexposed and sometimes I overexposed in a sunny day in Barcelona.
