Video camera timer
Some video cameras have a socket for a remote control unit. It appears, however that it is not always easy to connect an interval-contral to this socket. For instance, the Blaupunkt 8010 camcorder is not switched on or off in the traditional manner, but with a 40-60 ms lang pulse. One pulse switches the camera on, the next one switches it off. Manual operation with a switch is virtually impossible to achieve. However, the timer described here offers a solution.
