Remote camera shutter trigger cable

I've used the info in the manual to create a remote shutter cable and it works perfectly apart from one flaw.

Unlike every other camera I've used with a remote cable, triggering the cable *does not* wake the camera up if it has gone into power saving (sleep) mode.  The shutter releases if the camera is fully on - but once it has gone into sleep mode, the cable no longer causes the shutter to fire.

This is a real shame as I often use remote triggers in situations where the camera will have powered down.

Anyone else had the same experience?

I use an Oppilas Pixel N3 with adapter to 3.5 I have had since I was a Canon guy. It works perfectly in my X-S10 and will wakeup a sleeply camera. About $30 on Amazon - hope this helps.

Noted, gonna see about it when I'm in need of a shutter release, on another note do you happen to know if the timer setting can be customized to something other than 2 or 10 seconds?

    • That is odd, there are very few other settings that limit using es. Having a flash unit attached is one, but I would have thought that would also keep you from using ms+es. Mines does this: Have you upgraded to the most recent firmware? This may sound drastic, have you copied you settings down somewhere and tried a full reset?
    • Thanks for the reply. I don't have that choice in my x-t30 menu  It's just MS or ES/MS with ES for fast exposures i.e. 1/4000s Louise
    • I agree with all that's been said above, hence my decision to buy XS10 rather than XT4. The reputation of Pentax was that if it got covered in mud you could wash it under a running tap. I never tried that but was happy to use it in briefly in heavy rain and desert sandstorms and never had a problem. I wouldn't be that confident in such circumstances without weather sealing and would use poly bag and chamois even in less extreme conditions. It's often the small doors covering SD slots, batteries etc that aren't sealed, and some times cable and microphone or remote shutter sockets have no cover at all. Sealing a pop-up flash isn't easy either. Worth protecting those points if you're out in weather you want to protect yourself from.  
    • https://fujifilm-dsc.com/en-int/manual/x-t30/menu_shooting/shooting_setting/index.html Scroll down to Shutter Type. It is in the shooting menus setup, you can choose between manual shutter, electronic shutter or both together.
    • Hi all I have been trying to use my x-t30 with the electronic shutter but not having much success  As it's a mirrorless camera I thought it would be straightforward! But there appears to be no way to manually select it (only combined ms/es). I've set it to auto with 1/125s exposure. I'm using a hand-held wired shutter release. I'm sure it was working before I updated the firmware to 1.40 a while back but I confess I haven't really used it since. Am I missing something or is there any way around this issue? At the same time, I can take short video clip and it's fine - surely I must be able to take a still? Thanks for any suggestions Louise
