Y-Splitting remote shutter control

Post by kentsin » 12 Jul 2009, 12:57

Thanks for Cabe, I have build a y-splitting remote shutter control according to the design of Martin "mpot" Pot http://martybugs.net/photography/remote.cgi

The paddle is modified from a paddle control of a sewing machine. I buy one from a local supplier which comes with a extra motor which I think can put into other use. The cost is about USD10.00.

The original paddle have 3 levels of switch, I use the first and the last to control the focus and shutter.
Use 2 of 3 levels of switch.
