Picture of Non Destructive Fotosnaiper on a Canon ,photosniper

fitting my canon 550 to my tair3s with the handle . whilst causing no damage whatsoever.

NOTE YOU CAN PUT A M42 3X TELECONVERTER ON AND THE CAMERA WILL FIT! NO FURTHER ACTION NECESSARY HOWEVER IF 900MM IS NOT YOUR THING AND WOULD PREFER 300MM THEN READ ON. ... . ._

 i used
 eos to m42 adapter
screwdriver
bit of padding

optional
remote for canon
electrical tape

Step 1: The Issue

Picture of The Issue

the shutter release for the zenit s hits the bottom of other cameras attached to the kit.
remove only the big screws from the top of the trigger 8 in total.
the shutter release mount is held by 4 screws under the top plate

Step 2: Keep the Bits

Picture of Keep the Bits

remove these 4 screws and the mount should come off complete with the washer/locking screw assembely. away from the plat put the screws back in the mount and locking assembly to keep it complete.

Step 3: Hiding Place

Picture of Hiding Place

at the front of the trigger body you will notice a empty space big enough to fit the shutter mount in. put your padding foam on top to stop it from rattling about.

there is also the trigger pin it might need adjusting in a tiny bit, the small screw on the side unlocks and thin it can be screwed in a bit, remember to re lock it.

Step 4: Best Finger Forward

Picture of Best Finger Forward

get your remote shutter release ,and align the shutter button with your finger tip whilst gripping the trigger. the one iv got has a curve on the back which just so happens to align with the lens mounting wheel, its like they knew what i was going to do with it. ay way wrap some electrical tape around it ,trying not to gum up the original trigger or the new one ,also look out for the lens mounting bits.i put a little packing in to sure it up.

Step 5: Bring It All Together.

use your eos m42 adapter ring. and adjust the mount ring on the lens if camera does not sit straght. plug your remote in put the wire where it wont get in the way.
it may be calld a photosniper  (fotosnaiper) but please don't go sneaking about, keep your movements clear and obvious, then no one will call someone else who shoots more than pictures.
