Pentax Hack: DSLR Shutter Release Cable

Eagleapex has written a neat post at Instructables explaining how he made a shutter release cable for his Pentax DSRL camera from hands-free cell phone kit. Here’s a list of materials and tools that you need:


To keep this on the cheap, I kept it minimal. The most expensive item was the hands-free phone kit; on sale for $10.
(1) Hands-free cell phone kit (IMPORTANT: The DSLRs take a 3/32″ stereo plug. See the picture for details.)
(2) Momentary buttons (two colors)
(1) Mini micro switch
(1) Enclosure, for me a wonderfully ironic 35mm film canister
extra wire tape
