Dedicated cable release cord for iPhone camera Answered
How could I make a dedicated cable release cord for the iPhone?
I have looked and looked for this end product - but cannot find it anywhere...
Knowing that we can use the volume up button on headphones for the iPhone/Touch to snap pictures, how could we make a cord that is dedicated to this function (instead of using earbutds). I am wanting to use this feature to help with making stop motion movies. Using the earbud control is useful.
But I'd really like to have a cord a bit longer than the standard earbud cord lenth. And also would be nice if the cord could have a very easy to press buton. Clicking on the headphone volume control can be sort of akward sometimes. Perhaps we could take some old earbuds and cut off the earbuds and do something with the remaining wires and make a some sort of switch with the remainder.
I am pretty sure that I could waste an amazing amount of time and figure out via trial and error - but thought it might be better to ask for some quick direction!
I believe that the more recent models of iPhone/Touch use a TRRS plug as described on this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRS_connector
Any thoughts - THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
