The DigiSnap 2700 is a variation of the DigiSnap 2000, adding a Real-Time Clock, simplified for use with modern digital cameras, and includes a set of connections optimized for long term time-lapse projects. The DigiSnap 2700 was tailored specifically for use in the Harbortronics Time-Lapse Package.
The DigiSnap 2700 has a simplified feature set compared to the other members of the DigiSnap 2000 family, reducing the configuration complexity substantially. The DigiSnap 2700 is intended for use with SLR and other 'contact' style camera interfaces. In addition, a Real-Time Clock has been added, to more easily use the Advanced Time-Lapse feature of the DigiSnap controllers.
This DigiSnap has no internal battery, but is powered via a connector to a 5V power source, such as an AC adapter, or the Harbortronics Battery Converter. New to the DigiSnap controller series is the ability to control power to the camera, lighting, or strobe via connection to the Harbortronics Battery Converter.
Low Temperature Modification: $60
The system has been proven by many many customers in the arctic, and even the antarctic. There are only a couple circuits that have demonstrated temperature sensitivity, and we can address them by a couple of modifications to the production circuits. This is really only necessary if your equipment will be operating at less than -10C.
USB-to-Serial converter cable: $20
Configuring the DigiSnap 2700 requires a serial port. If your computer does not have a serial port, you will need a USB-to-Serial converter cable. This USB-to-Serial converter cable is based on the FTDI chipset, which we have found to be of high quality and very reliable. We supply drivers for this converter cable for Windows and Mac OS X; modern Linux distributions come with the required driver pre-installed (click here to download current drivers for Windows, OS X, or Linux).
Configuring the DigiSnap with a Windows PC
Your computer can act as a terminal to configure the Digisnap. This guide describes how, and includes a configuration file for HyperTerm:
