Back to basics, A_Str8:

Here's the simplest circuit:



On this page are pictures of a finished release:

And you need to run this script:

Code: [Select]
@title Remote button
while 1
  wait_click 1
  if is_key "remote" then shoot
wend

end

Notes:

1. For some cameras the single lithium cell doesn't provide enough voltage, hence the discussions about higher voltages and regulators in this thread.
2. You could omit the connector and wire a USB lead directly to the PCB.

you need to run this script:

You may like to know that with 'StereoData Maker' you do not need to run a script.

As well as a home-made switch you can also use a Ricoh CA-1 http://stereo.jpn.org/eng/sdm/ca1.htm
This focuses on half-press and takes photo on full-press-and-release.

that Ricoh CA-1 looks pretty neat.  does it only run off a single AAA battery?  i wouldn't mind getting one just so i dont have to do any more work, but i assume the cost greatly outweighs the work i'd put into making a usb cable.
on a related note, i bought the wrong type of mini-usb cable for this project and didn't notice until i was all done ripping it apart, ripping up a mini flashlight apart, soldering everything together and hot glueing it all tight.  is there a converter to convert one mini usb to the other type of mini usb?  i assume i bought a 4 pin instead of a 5 pin.

Yup - no problem A_Str8.

Heh - if I'd known about the Ricoh CA-1 at the start, I'd have bought it. :)

I have CHDK & SDM compatible, wireless shutter remotes.  These are professionaly designed, built to order modules. Assembled transmitter/receiver pair cost $80.00.  Just the transmitter or just the receiver cost $50.00 if purchased separately.  Shipping depends on where it's getting sent, but I will typically use a flat rate box within the US.

Email: DanielRoy119@gmail.com for photos, or if you are interested in purchasing.  I accept PayPal.

Technical Specs:
*Over 100ft wireless range.
*Compatible with SDM Software
*One remote can shutter 1 through 256 cameras simultaneously
*Script coming soon to let wireless remote change the focus, Tv, Av, & ISO settings in CHDK

Photos? Does it work with the current SDM software?
