The Canon EOS digital bodies I've had use a mini phono jack for a remote shutter button. I see several brands on B&H etc that all look identical (like this one) with the exact same locking button. I see some are advertised to work on various brands, not just one, so I ask, are they all standard and interchangable?
You'll notice that the prices vary considerably too. Mine is the cheapest possible, so much so that I wonder how they can even cover shipping. It seems to no longer work, so I'm wondering how they work. Is it simple continuity between different pairs if the tip-ring-sleeve connections, or is there some circuitry involved?
I'd like to know the specification, so I can possibly fix mine, or just use my own button on that cord.
