    DIY Strobe Slave?

    I made one of these years ago. I found it in the bottom of a pocket in my camera bag the other day. It still works! The thing is it has a Vivitar male jack on it so I can only use it with that flash. I vaguely remember that the schematic was in a magazine article. This would have been 25 or 30 years ago.

    Anyone remember the article or have a copy of the schematic? I remember that it was very simple and had few parts. The one I have I installed in a pen cap.

    There are gobs of circuit schematics available online. You should be able to find one with a web search.

    Here is one Martin. It may not be the same one but it looks simple to build.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    That one looks similar to what I remember but with 3 sensors it probably works better than the one I built. I'll have to gather some parts and give it a try.
