  • Interestingly enough, that's exactly one of the ones I had looked at on ebay. What I'd like to find is the usb connector on one end and nothing attached to the other. I may have to get this anyway ...
  • Created questions HS50EXR USB port.
    Does anyone know what kind of connector this is? And where I can get a cable with it on it. I'm making an interface for a lightning trigger. I have all the parts except this. Thanks...
  • I made my own cable with a 2.5mm stereo plug for the trigger, a micro usb cable, a 22k and 10k resistor. Didn't need the RR-80A. Cost less than $10 to build. Just don't buy your trigger from ...
  • Replied in It Works!
    Didn't need the photo resistors after all. I figured out how to do it with a minimum of components and hooked up to the output of the trigger. I can fool the trigger with a tv remote like the ...
  • Nevermind...duh...easy to find... http://martybugs.net/photography/remote.cgi
  • Replied in RS-60E3
    I actually wanted the RS-60E3... Sorry 'bout that...
  • Anyone have access to or know where I can get the schematics for these remotes? I'm trying to reverse engineer something and I'd like to see how they work. Thanks...
  • Ok...I rewrote it. How about this: Rich, This is taken right off your website: *Free Cable offer applies to Lightning Trigger LT3 and LT-IV orders only for Sony DSLR, Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, ...
  • Research continues.  The spec of these photo resistors is 5k to 10k ohms at 10 LUX.  That's about the brightness of a candle at 1 foot.  Getting more hopeful all the time.  If I mount them right ...
  • Update...I just bought a lot 20 of them with a 30 ms response time for all of $0.99 ...gotta love ebay...
  • I built the resistor network and it works like I thought it would. Since I'm not getting anywhere with Rich and his horrible customer "support" (he won't give me any data on what the output is) ...
  • Good thinking...I'll digest that. As to the cable, I've already made a resistor network that works.  What I need from him is the output of his device (pull to hi/lo or some other thing).  He wasn't ...
  • I haven't sent this yet but I'm going to. What do you think? Since you failed to live up to your guarantee, I want a 100% refund. Call it an aggravation fee. Advertising that the device comes with ...
  • This is his answer to me wanting a schematic for a cable that will work: Hello Don, The options are to return the order complete per the Terms and Conditions, or purchase the modified RR-80A cable. ...
  • Yes, I've seen it. Almost all the Fuji shutter delays he shows are n/a. And I'm starting to wonder why Fuji does anything the way they do. They're not too user friendly as far as I can see when it ...
  • A simpler version would be to just shunt it automatically to discover/prefocus when it's plugged in with a single 22k resistor and have the release pot to the trigger... Maybe I should to sell this ...
  • Here's what I've discovered. The cable that came with my wireless remote has a built in 83k ohm resistor across 4 and 5. That's the little plastic lump you see in some cables. My educated guess is ...
  • Yeah, I don't believe being given no info is helpful at all. Maybe I can reverse engineer a cable using the output from my wireless remote...which works for half and full press. This looks like ...
  • Don't they realize this hurts their sales? The only reason I bought Rich's trigger is that his site was the ONLY one I could find that claimed it would work with the HS50. It doesn't and that could ...
  • I just got this from Fuji tech support verifying what we all know...except Rich: Thank you for contacting FUJIFILM North America Corporation. Please allow us to assist you. We can only guarantee ...
