inspired by this thread,, http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...+cable+release.
i started looking around for odds and ends to put one of these together. in one of my parts boxes i found 2 serial cords that had a stereo jack on the other end. one w/3.5mm, one w/2.5mm ends. where they came from i just don't know. i cut the serial connecter of the 2.5mm cord, went to radioshack and bougt a DPDT switch and put it a small plastic bottle. instant cable release complete w/ferrite.
this switch does not stay connected unless you hold it that way. it's a momentary switch. hold it to one side and the cam focuses, barly click it to the other side and the shutter releases. it fits the hand also.. total cost under $3us

Yes, I just made one of these and was going to post a how-to. Looks like you beat me to it.

I made my cable about 10m long, hehe
