My sister has a Nikon D60 camera and is an active photographer. She had been begging for a remote control for the camera and this particular model doesn’t have the option of wired remote, which would have been easier to make myself. The original ML-L3 remote costs something around 40$ in my local photo equipment shop. So I browsed the web a bit and found out that someone had recorded the remote signal and built a diy-version of the remote. I said to myself: “I can do that!” And so I did. The thing cost me some 7$, not counting the cost of the PCB and time.
!!! This is by any means NOT my original idea. The construction and code written, however, is. If anyone feels offended by not being properly credited then let me know. !!!
