You need:
Arduino (I use freetronics leostick)
3v relay
a remote plug for your camera
a 4x AA battery pack
switches/buttons (optional)
3 position switch for version 2

Step 1: Connect the battery and relay

Connect the battery pack negative terminal to the GND pin on the arduino, and the positive to the +5V pin.
Now connect the coil pins of the relay to the GND and digital 6 pins on the arduino.
Connect the plug for the camera to the relay as shown in the diagram. Make it so without power to the relay, the remote circuit is broken.
<p>Very nice project. Simple steps and great way to control a relay. Canon 1000D</p>
<p>awesome :)</p>
