Do exactly the same as you did for your post with the picture, but instead of clicking reply click new topic.

Vito, you got da powa! I think, anyway. I believe you can set up a new thread for Jmoro and move his post into it. Give it a try, and if the forum explodes, we'll knowyou did it.

barbara, I tried that - but to "move" I would have to move the whole topic. I decided to leave well enough alone. Perhaps I should have been bolder and played around a little more?

Timidity is a always a good quality, too.:-)

Note to Jmoro: if it continues to confuse you, don't think you're alone. None of us started out knowing all the ins and outs. Just ask for directions and at least one person, and probably more, will jump right in to help.

Please forgive me for bumping this thread, monkey and vito.

Just to let you know, I have just dry run the remote cable and it works fine. All it took was three wires which I pushed on the three pins (common, focus and shutter). You touch the common and focus wires together and the camera auto-focuses. Then you touch the shutter wire with the common wire and the shutter opens. The shutter won't fire unless all three wires are connected. Regardless of whether it is auto or manual focus mode. And it wouldn't fire because it had no film in it, but I got a flashing "0" on the LCD to show it was thinking about it. I just need some switches now and I'll make a proper cable.

When it is all up and running I'll make a post in the tips and tricks forum. Even though no-one here owns this camera (it is a digital forum after all) it may help others somehow.

You're halfway there, Ferny! Once you get it truly up and running, don't forget to let us know by giving us a link to your post in the Tips & Tricks forum.
