I’ve tried to find out the cheapest option for getting tally lights on my canon xa cameras. I’ve previously done some work with the Wemos D1 Mini (ESP8266) and found that there is a neat RGB-shield for these that make them super simple to put together and thanks to the work by OneGuyOneBlog and Kasper Skårhøj getting the code working was not too much of a hassle. Next version will add a wifi manager and webinterface for changing switcher ip, camera id and LED brightness. Maybe also build a 3D-printed case with a coldshoe and light defuser. What do you guys think?
