making my own trigerring handle

Recommended Posts

guys i need your help

i saw this video and want to do the same for my xt3.

thing is the guy doens't give any technical informations about how he does it.

finding the handle, the cable and the start stop button is not difficult, drilling i have the equipment.

but what i don't know is how it works.

i mean does it need power ? do i have to include a battery somewhere or just need to weld the wires to the button ?

i think @androidlad and @BTM_Pix you are the most skilled ones to answer my questions, maybe...

I did this back on my Canon 600D and it worked by mapping half-shutter/focus button to start-recording (with Magic Lantern) and then using the remote jack to send the input. I don't remember the exact tutorial I followed but this one seem correct - https://www.doc-diy.net/photo/eos_wired_remote/  It was a really simple thing to do and worked exactly as I wanted.

 

I imagine that with something like a GH5 which triggers recording with the shutter button it would work essentially the same. Should be similar on the X-T3

well no it doesn't really help.

i am more in the need of infos about powering or not. the link provided by adam doesn't help me much as i am not sure fuji acts like canon.

Literally on the same website there's a section about Fujifilm - https://www.doc-diy.net/photo/remote_pinout/#fuji 

AFAIK it's being powered by the camera.

Or just search for a "diy shutter release"

Whatever happened to you trying to get a cable from Tilta ?

The Fuji remote does not require any power as it gets it from the camera.

I think the easiest approach for you to do is to buy one of these cheap £10.99 RR100 compatible remotes from Amazon

Then crack open the handle part and take it from there as at least you will then have a fully working example to work from.

If you want to be a bit more fancy then they do a wireless version for £21.50 that you could do the same thing with.

This may well be more appropriate as you can have the handle anywhere then without running cables.

thanks man

well the think with the wireless is that you need the receiver, so it would take more room than just a simple cable coming from the handle.

for the tilta, it was for the nucleus nano, ordered the lanc cable but doesn't work :( i think this will be my next job to have this #"*#~& nucleus nano work with the fuji but i think it is way more complicated as the nano has his own connectors.
