NX1: “Shot 2 Rec” + “USB Charging” = simultaneously : HELP

Recommended Posts

NX1: “Shot 2 Rec” + “USB Charging” = simultaneously : HELP
Dear Comrades! I do really appreciate your help.

1. “USB Charging” works perfectly fine
2. Shutter Release via USB port works perfectly fine
3. I spent entire day trying to create ONE usb cable with BOTH functions simultaneously.

It looks like i understand “usb pin-outs”, but i do not understand why i fail.  i have a usb-release-cable-knob (works fine) but i'm going mad with pin-out logic for USB release..

Please, HOW to create a USB cable with BOTH: release knob + charging.

Thanks in advance…

I am sorry I wish I could help but i do not know enough about how the USB release works.

I would assume however that it is a digital signal and in that case, I do not think it would be possible to do both functions at the same time.

usb Shooter release cable: is a simple knob, which connects ground of usb cable with white one. if green one shortened to the ground, the pre-focus activated (the same logic as a main release button on the boby). There are No digital signals involved...

But, for some reason, i can not duplicate release cable via hand made one. That makes me creasy...))) 

You can buy nx1 usb release cable on ebay for 10 dollars, and it is a fantastic little tool. I wish i could marry this cable with charging option...

That is very interesting to know. How doe the cable know there is a release cable attached or is it always checking for the pull down on those pins? In that case, I would guess that as soon as you plug anything else into the USB outlet such as a charging source the camera would stop listening for the cable release pins.

have you been able to build a simple DIY cable release without the charging?

No, that's drive me crazy, because original usb-release cable has NO electronic inside, but ONLY simple knob...

Any advise???

Are you sure there are no electronics in the knob itself?

I agree I do not see any reason you should not be able to replicate this with USB charging as well unless for some reason when the NX1 is in USB charging mode it stops listening for the remote trigger.
