Super Mini Switch - A RS60-E3 Replacement

Could I get a better diagram of how the panel mount jack is wired which pin numbers were used.

See "Canon RS60-E3 Remote Pin-Out".

I just built one of these. Pretty cool. I followed the parts list on this page and the wiring information on the linked page. Thanks for the idea! I put my toggle switch on the left side but otherwise mine looks just like the picture.

Pentax uses the same pinouts, so this will work on the *ist D line, I am using the Canon RS60-E3 on my *ist D.

Hi Darrell, it's great to know that Pentax *ist D uses the same trigger pin-out as the Canon EOS Digital Rebels. Thanks for letting us know!

Ok now to build one in a Pistol grip. Canon is notoriously lacking in remote trigger pistol grips. I find them to be incredibly useful when shooting with a long lens, or using a hand held bellows for macro work. I used such a rig for 35 tears in my Canon F1, but the same option is not available for trigger release of EOS Rebels.
