Hi, I wanna buy a RR-80 Remote Release for mi FinePix s9100/s9600 but that product its not available in my country =(
So... i googled how does it works to build one but i didnt found anything.
I think it transmit a signal via the USB, i wanna know wich pins of the USB connector are involved.
If someone have it please gimme a hand, just open it, take a picture n upload it... or test with a multimeter the voltage at the pins when you push the switch... something! plz!


PS: sorry about my English

i thank you in advance for answering my queries at your earliest convenience

The pin connections for USB connectors are published in many places on the web - now the bad news; it is not simply a case of applying a voltage level to one of the pins - the Universal Serial Bus (USB) as its name suggests uses serial data communications (and they follow a complex interogation process when a USB slave is connected to a master device).

In short without knowing the format of the data required by the Fuji camera you wouldn't stand a chance of doing this. Even with that knowledge you would have an aweful lot of work to do. If you really want one of these you would find it much easier to order one from abroad.

Failing that buy a long mechanical type of shutter release.
