Hmmm, ok. Well I've always wanted to get into and know more about electronics but I've yet to find the right resource. What I need is a good book.

Sooo, if I might need a capacitor, perhaps it will be easier to just use my Honeywell Tilt-a-mite and hook up to the existing PC cord. Does it matter if I use the pin or sleeve for + or - on the battery?

Delay mechanism aside, a camera merely completes the circuit to fire the flash, right?
