I would like to know what do I need to start in sound triggered photography? I have knowledge in electronics and photography, but don't I know where to search in the first place.

What equipment do I need? Do I need a special digital camera?

And a few examples of product would be useful... just to get me going..

thanks!!

Clap-On.

Hehe, just kidding. There might be premade stuff out there. Quick google search pulled up this. When you say you have knowledge in electronics, I hope that means you have some good electrical skills like soldering, and wiring circuits. Otherwise, this isn't a DIY project I'd recommend.

What the guy did here was have this setup in complete darkness. The flash was set to go off when it detected a flash of light (slave flash behavior). The circuit board was rigged to flash when noise was detected. The camera was set to a long exposure or a bulb exposure. The shot was taken, triggering the flash.

I'd recommend of course a DSLR and a flash, but a higher end compact cold conceivably work if it has more advanced settings.

Jake's link might suit your needs more. Search diyphotography.net for more tutorials on sound triggered photography. I saw several other variations, and one might be better than the other for your purposes. Looks like buying a premade setup is out of the question though.

thanks for the answers!
However, I was indeed looking at products available on the market!
