Usb Rts-Shutter Partial Kit For Free

Question

I am the original creator of the DIY USB Shutter cable (triggered by RTS signal.)

If you can do soldering or a friend can help you, here is my offer:

 

 

The partial kit will be completely free. Shipping method is USPS 1st class mail on me for US address.

The partial kit contains:  1 resistor, 1 transistor, 2 diodes, a pair of wires, shrink wrap tube, a small spool of solder

 

You still have to buy these:

1. a USB-to-RS232 dongle  <-- about $8.50 to $10 shipped (source eBay)

2. a Nikon MC-DC2 cable (clone)  <-- about $3 shipped (source eBay)

3. (if don't have it) a soldering iron

 

The original article is in Cloudy Nights:

http://www.cloudynights.com/topic/457536-usb-corded-shutter-control-for-nikon/

 

If you like this approach, please PM me through CONTACT.

 

P.S. I think I have few kits immediately available now.

Just wish to add:

The partial kit costs me nothing so don't worry.  It will be free.

 

The USB-serial dongle has to be the 6-wire version, not the commonly seen 4-wire version.

It was mention in my CN post #3 (eBay item 370668345808)

 

Attached picture: this is what the partial kit looks like.

 

 

BTW, depend on different Nikon camera model, the wire remote model number will be different  (e.g., D5100 will be MC-DC2.)
