For example, in 2012, I made a telegraph key act as a shutter release. The Arduino would connect the focus and ground pins while the telegraph key was held down (i.e. tell the camera to achieve a focus lock). When you released it, the Arduino would briefly connect both the focus and fire pins to ground to tell the camera to take the picture....

I have a push button assert focus while you press the button, and for another second after you release it. The button fires the shutter should you press the button again within the second.

That would work also, but not having to press the button a second time generally works with the way I shoot my camera.

In general though, I don't use the Arduino that much, but I keep thinking I should bring it back.  When the steampunk camera was the E-3/E-5, I put a RM-CB1 underneath the telegraph key, and I could focus/shoot by pushing the key down.

One issue is some of the steampunk events are outdoors, and we have had rain in several of them (torrential rain in several).  Using the Olympus splash proof cameras + splash proof lenses works great, but I would need to protect the micro-processor from rain.

Should the Arduino sound off FIRING or FIRED? I might panic if I heard FIRE.

I used "Fire", but it is a string that is easy to change.
