THE TRICK: Getting
the connector that fits your camera.
The Shutter-Beam controls the cameras shutter release through a
modified remote shutter release cord. It simply pushes the button when
it detects a subject.
All camera manufacturers use a different connector for their remote
shutter release cords. Often they are proprietary connectors made only
by the manufacturer of the camera. The Shutter-Beam uses a standard
2.5mm phone jack for an output that is available at any electronics
store. Typically we have to purchase the cameras remote shutter
release cord and cut off the plunger and hook up the 2.5mm phone plug.
