I read an answer from rfusca about how to make a mechanical shutter release for the Panasonic DMC-FZ40. I can picture what you're saying in my head but I'm not sure what parts to buy. There are a ton of shutter release cables on the market, and as for the servo and microcontroller...I don't know where to even start.

I like your idea...a pretty cool work-around. Will you please provide some options for the parts you think will work? Some specific manufacturer/model/part numbers? And can you provide a bit more instructional detail please? I won't have a problem putting it together; I've built laser systems in a past career so I'm pretty sure I can make this work.

  • Could you add a link to the answer to which you're referring? That'd add some context so that someone else might be able to help even if @rfusca doesn't chime in. – Caleb Jan 18 '16 at 16:16

    @Caleb I made a hopefully intelligent guess :-) – Philip Kendall Jan 18 '16 at 16:28

Your best bet is to totally design it yourself. Take a look at this link for some ideas: mechanical shutter release Google Search
