How to build an external trigger cable for the
Panasonic DMC-FZ20 digital photo camera.



Schematic
Schematic of the trigger cable.

As you can see you need :
I simply mounted the cable into an old pen housing.
Resistor construction
The key with the resistors
2,5mm 4pin Jack
The 2,5mm jack
The key housing
The key in the housing

* Only two pins of the jack are used, I do not yet know the meaning of the other pins. (to be done)
* I only used S1 in the schematics. A separated S2 is not needed normally.
* With ONE key the camera triggers on releasing the key.
