KCan and JimHunt did on the old Forum. I'll let them know to repost...

Very simple, you short 1 pin to ground to focus, and both to snap the picture.

Try the Remote Control forum here: I think that is where NHL's second link was meant to go, though it didn't work for me.

Thanks For the Information!!

I just did some research of my own.. Did a little lab set up with the old voltameter and made a remote in 20 minutes that will do both Auto Focus and Fire with 2 different momentary switches.

Ill post a kit and parts and test it more.

Thanks Again
Kirk

Default RF remote for the D7 series pics D7-RF1

I posted this link in the Minolta forum so this is kinda a repeat. Here are some pics of the D7-RF1 RF remote PCB.

Here are some photos and a schematic using an RF toy. Any Two-channel toy will do (two buttons or toggles--both having a plus and minus position). You can use the transmitter without modifications, so pick one that you can manipulate easily. The receiver will have one motor control with heavier gauge wires and one auxilliary (steering, maybe) control with very fine wires. Just make sure the batteries specified for the receiver will provide the correct voltage for the relays you use. If you're more up to date than I am, you can use solid state relays.
