Introduction: Canon Remote Shutter From Car Charger

Hi there, Today I will share all of you to make DIY Canon Remote Shutter from Car Charger.

The Equipment needed is :

1. Old Car Charger
2. Solder
3. Relay Button
4. Adapter 2,5 mm

Step 1: Open Car Charger

If you have old/used car charger do not throw it at garbage. You may make some DIY project like I did..
First Thing that you must open the car charger.. and cut the cable to small board, I used different picture of car charger to make it, cause i bought it just for almost  10.000 Rupiah (1 USD) for  4 Item.

Step 2: Solder the Cable

After you opened, solder it to Relay Button which is I show u bellow. make sure you have the good soldering.

Step 3: Put the Relay Into Casing

Try to put the relay button into car charger casing to have good handle when you pressed it. If you have a problem with the diameter relay button try to use hot iron to blend some of the plastic.. I did it... :)

Ooohhh.. sorry for ugly nails... do not fokus on it...

Step 4: Solder to Another Plug End

Solder the end plug to the middle  pin and the corner pin... pin between them ignore it. for further info please see the picture.

Step 5: Adapter Use

if you don not have 2,5 mm plug you may uses the adapter for it, just I did

Step 6: In Action

Plug the jack to shutter plug.. and ready to use.. you may halfpress to fokus the object and then full press to take a picture..
