So essentially this instructable covers how to make a DSLR wired remote from a soda can tab and a 2.5mm male to male cable. This remote is just a very simple switch made from recycled trash and common items i already owned. I first made this switch as an emergency when i broke my actual remote, and from then on i carry it in my camera bag incase my remote dies again.
1. Pliers or similar tool
2. 2.5mm male to male cable
3. soda can tab
Step 1: step one- bending the tab
Using pliers or a similar tool bend the soda can tab in half. A flat surface can help give you leverage with the pliers if needed.
