well i already wrote it in the german forum, but i really like the "finished" design and that you only need knowledge of scripting, nothing else - when you have this beauty of a remote control accompany you :)

Hi !

Still a lot can be done in the Firmware of the IR receiver. It has a maximum of 4kByte Flash and i'm currently using only 1.5k of it.

Just added support to emulate the Ricoh CA1 cable remote via infrared. It's on you to request more features.
The remote can be switched after a battery change to one of six possible modes. They remain as long as the battery is inserted.

You talk about the Apple remote, but the USB connection receiver is what exactly? It says CanoRemote on it. What is the part number/model number? What cameras does it work with/is designed for?

Does it come in a case or just a circuit board as shown?

TIA,

Hi !

The Printed circuit board with CanoRemote on it is my development. As PhyrePhoX mentioned i did circuit design, layout and software development. The Apple Remote is unmodified. At the moment you cannot buy it anywhere. I'm planning to buid 20 prototypes. They will come as populated board with the software running on it, it has currently no housing, so it's up the user to buid a housing or use the PCB as it is.

It can be used for all cameras supporting remote control via USB power.

Be careful, Bill, I am discussing remote devices in the documentation with the next SDM release.
Separate receivers compromise precision synch.

It is best to use a single receiver and two cables to the cameras.

Yes they will because they are triggered from the same infrared signal.
