my sony remote cost even more... and just to console u abit.. my 1000L is about 70 bucks or more...dr34mc4st3r said:got it yesterday evening...can't believe a relatively basic remote like this can cost quite a bit, haha
Interesting: how did you trigger the camera? What switch did you use? Sounds like the cost is no more than S$10.st11x said:If it's the same as what I thought it is, it's the same cord for the 800si and Dyax 7?
What I did was to grab the audio cable from the CD drive to the PC sound card (should be cheap and chips in Singapore), saw off one hole, and that's it. I even soldered a switch onto it but the cables were too thin.
You don't really need the switch. I managed to find the cable lying somewhere, so that's free. Otherwise, that alone would have cost me 5 bucks.obrag said:Interesting: how did you trigger the camera? What switch did you use? Sounds like the cost is no more than S$10.
No I don't have the wiring diagram, but I don't think you'll need it.jsbn said:Interesting. Do u have the pin/wiring diagram for the switch?
come, fall into temptationjsbn said:Hmm... will try it over the weekends. Almost succumbed to the temptation of getting a remote for the fireworks juz now when I stepped into CP. Had to keep talking and psycho-ing myself, "The remote is not worth $50... The remote is not worth $50..."
Hey, good on ya. Nice instructions with pictures. Hmm ... P1 & P3 works for me to fire the shutter, maybe that has changed.jsbn said:Thnx to st11x for giving me the inspiration to do it.

Feels better isn't it? Smaller and lighter, easier to use and carry abouts.
