I did follow your thread when you first posted. It does look very involved and patience sapping. Although I will probably have a go in the not too distant.



How do you power it though - I forgot.

It's good to see another DIYer out there. I think I watched too much MacGyverwhen I was younger.

I'd be interested to seeothers'creative adaptations of the DIY cable release.

This is the one I actually followed in the end.

Here is the one I made, based on the Peeters site, not very creative, well maybe the lead might qualify (maybe its the colour). It only cost £3 ($5) to make, I already had one of the switches, 3.5 to 2.5mm adapter, oh and the lead of course!!!

The labels are quite easy to make, printed in black & white on ordinary photo paper. They were laid out and sized in Corel Draw, with double sided tape on back, clear Fablon or cellotape on front, then cut to shape. I have made several labels like ths over the years, mainly for electronic gizmo's I built, and they wear very well.

It works very well, though I have only tested the bulb function, not used it for any shots yet, but I am sure it will work ok (waiting for the darker evenings).
