My first Instructable - how to make a wired remote for your Canon Digital Rebel or similar digital cameras!
Step 1: Parts
Here's a list of parts you will need for this project:
-Film Canister: This will serve as the body for the controller, after all, it is going to be used for taking pictures!
-Two-Way Switch: I had an old electronics kit from RadioShack that I took it from.
- 2 Submini Pushbutton Momentary Contact Switches: Purchased at RadioShack for about 3 bucks. Only pieces I had to buy.
-3/32" Stereo Jack Plug: I'll discuss this in the next step.
-Three Identical Lengths of Copper Wire: However long you want the cord to be.
-Meter w/ Continuity Test: Will come in handy when making connections later.
And then, some basic parts:
-Utility Knife or Scissors
-Soldering Iron and Stand
-Rosin Core Solder
-Heat Shrink Tubing
-Drill with Small Bits (I used a 3/16" bit to drill holes for the pushbutton switches)
