Looking for a timer to add to the trailcam I am currently making(My first). . . Went to RS and they have this chip called a 556 timer. (salesman said it's 2- 555 timers on one chip) Anybody have experience with this RS timer?

Altho this IC would work for a 2 stage timer, it's 10 times less energy efficient than 2 TLC-555 timers so harder on batterys.  There is an efficient 556 type IC but RS don't carry it.

This has been mentioned several times before, you need to go back and read all the posts and see if there are any other tips/tricks you might find interesting or need to know.
