Handyman with a soldering iron!

Had a bit of a brainwave today and realised I could adapt my cheapo chinese intervalometer (which is AWESOME!) to work with both my 1DMKIII's and my new G10. I cut the 3 pin N3 type plug (for EOS1DMKIII) off and soldered on a 2.5mm stereo plug wiring it as pictured below.



I then added a 2.5mm female stereo socket to the left over bit of cable with the 3 pin N3 plug wiring it so that it matched up with the wiring as above. Both work perfect!

Great post - well done.

How do you which wires to solder to which pin on the jack plug?

Thanks

To be honest, I just tested each combination until I found the one that allows a half press / focus and full press fire. Once I discovered that it was simple. Easy peasy!

Great thanks - I'll follow the wiring in your photo.
