DIY wireless remote for cable-release shutter cameras

 Arduino enthusiast Andy has a camera with an older-style cable shutter release, and created a unique method of wireless remote control for the camera. By using a servo to pull and push the shutter release cable, and then controlling the servo via an Arduino-compatible circuit the mechanics of the remote were solved. And for wireless remote - a cheap RF remote control was hacked to control the Arduino. It's simple and it works - well done Andy
