Wired shutter release adapter


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. 

I am getting a little frustrated in my research for purchasing a wired shutter release for my xs10. 

The main sticking points are finding a good third party one as I think the rr100 is very overpriced, plus it requires a three pin adapter to converts the male 2.5mm jack to a 3.5mm.

I'm struggling mainly with finding an adapter as they are all either four pin, or so poorly rated that they're probably best avoided. 

Has anyone out there sorted their kit out yet and if so, could you please point me in the right direction. 

Cheers 

Simon

Your comment intrigued me enough that I did some research. Based on the information at http://www.doc-diy.net/photo/remote_pinout/ most Fujifilm cameras use the same "remote protocol" as most Canons (and some Olympus and Pentax). So I wired up a 3.5mm plug the same way and it worked! So all you should need is a cheapish ($10 to $12 on Amazon, like this https://www.amazon.com/Kiwifotos-RS-80N3-Control-Shutter-Connection/dp/B071XPW655/) Canon remote and the plug adapter.

Someone on another thread somewhere said "if you look for Canon Rebel you'll be good".

Thank you for your advice, the main sticking point now is finding a suitable adapter... Which is proving a headache. 

A 2.5mm to 3.5mm mic adapter seems hard to find. There are plenty of four pin adapters out there, but they are more for headphones etc.... I'm trying to find a reputable mic adapter and don't really know if a four pin is compatible.

    • Salve, qualcuna sa quanti minuti / ore di filmato in full hd si riesce a fare su una scheda da 64 gb? Grazie
    • I’m thinking in the other direction. Considering trading my 18-55 and 85mm f1.8 (Viltrox) for the 16-80. I have a 23 1.4 and a manual 50 1.4, so I think the extra zoom range is better to have than the longer fast prime. Also, I like the 16mm length and don’t have that now....
    • +1  Plug in overnight and you are good to go next day.  You can also buy a second battery and external charger and swap out the batteries when one gets low.  This works well for me when traveling or forgot to recharge.
    • Yes, agreed. All of my computers are made in China and many other electronic devices are also made in China. Japanese cars, for example, are no longer guarantee of quality and reliability. Someone I know bought a Honda Odyssey and ended up with a broken transmission and costed him $5000 to fix. Personally, I had to dump my Toyota after only a little over 30,000 miles in less than 4 years due to brake problems and other electronic problems. I paid premium price for my Toyota thinking I bought quality. But quality was not there.
    • Have you tried an other SD card?
