Remote Camera Switch
In recent years, household appliances lines have become more and more updated. Our favorite toys, phones, smartphones, and other gadgets became increasingly outdated. Being engaged in amateur photography, I ran into one problem that I wanted to solve right here, and now. Everyone knows (who is engaged in photography) that it is not always possible to shoot a selected scene from hands. Need a tripod. But, and with it, you still have to push the shutter button twice, when adjusting the sharpness (if there is an automatic adjustment), and a second time to trigger the shutter itself. And when working at long focal lengths of the lens, any vibration, even the smallest, can cause blurring the frame. For most digital SLR cameras, there is an option for a remote switch, that is, an analogue of the shutter button. But it is sold separately.And it is just not enough.So, having some spare, unnecessary, old gadgets, some spare time and simple tools, you can assemble the remote switch yourself shutter for a digital camera.You will need: old, more button The phone, headphones (headset) From tools:.. soldering iron, wire cutters, needle files, in general, a simple home kit From phones (smartphones), we need to be only external buttons. These can be power buttons, camera buttons, volume buttons. More often they are all on the side surfaces. It is advisable that the buttons be paired, that is, double as at the volume.The headset is needed with a box with buttons. This may be a headset for Nokia, Alkatel or other manufacturers. This box will be the body of our remote switch.In general, in the presence of fantasy, any convenient box into which our two buttons fit nicely can serve as a case. Even better, the button will be one, but with a double tap as on all photo bottles. The first press-sharpness, then click - the shutter release. Such a button can be placed, depending on the size, at least, on the end of a thick marker.There are two types of plugs on the headsets. For simplicity, we call them "thick" and "thin." So, we need a “thin”, because it is he who fits the corresponding socket in the camera. But it does not matter if the headset you find has a thick plug with adapters for them.So, to begin with we sort (break, fiddle) suitable us old phone We need to get to the place on the board where the side buttons are located. The buttons on the board and the push-buttons on the phone's case.Found that Something similar? We take the headset. We disassemble a box with buttons. With a thin blade, we divide the box into two halves.
