Quick and dirty wired remote trigger
« on: September 27, 2017, 01:45:45 AM »

Just a normal whiteboard marker?

Nope! I needed a quick wired remote trigger for my new toy and wanted to build it out of stuff I had lying around. Needed it to fit in your palm and be thumb triggered just like the shutter release for SLR/DSLR cameras. Happened to have a dried up whiteboard marker on the table next to me and this is the result:

Machined the button end piece out of delrin rod, inserted a little push button switch. Cut off the end of where the marker tip was, machined the BNC connector down slightly to friction fit. The cap nicely protects the BNC connector :D
