All the tricks

Here is a couple of ideas and tricks about light barrier photography (not really "all of them" yet).

We will be happy if you can also share yours.

Water Drop Photography with Joker²



A little introduction to the world of drop photography with the light barrier system Joker² and the electromagnetic drop dispenser of eltima electronic. On the basis of concrete assembly instructions and practical programming examples we will show how pictures of crests, pillars or drop collisions can be taken.

Driving inductive loads

Driving inductive loads


In experimental photography with light barriers it often happens that inductive loads, such as magnetic valves, lifting- or pulling magnets, relays, etc. have to be driven.

With its four outputs, the light barrier system Joker² is predestined for applications like that. Using its outputs, cameras, speedlites and also inductive loads can be actuated. However, especially with the latter, a few things must be carefully considered.
