Claude is correct. The parallax solution has been working flawlessly for me since day one. My first small panorama using a Nokia 770, the parallax board, Claude's AWSOME cable, and a Digital Rebel XT using a 50mm lens can be found at: http://hillelsteinberg.com/PanoramaFrontYard This is a small pano...

Claude, I received the Parallax board today and hooked your cable up to it using your diagram above in about 90 seconds. I left it dangling down from the Orion and fired up the Nokia 770. I selected the bluetooth icon and paired with the board quickly using the 0000 passkey. I started up the papywiz...

jackwu, Sure, I believe it was from: http://microcontrollershop.com/product_info.php?products_id=2586 The product is the TTL-232R-5V-WE, and the "WE" is for wire-ended instead of the plastic thingy. I knew I just wanted the exposed wires to do the soldering, and the 5v is what everyone was throwing ...

Claude, You probably want to know the skinny from someone who knows what they are doing (e.g. jeremyp), but just a few more notes: 1. I used the standard 4-wire telephone cable but the coloring was "green yellow red black" instead of your "yellow green red black" so I just switch from yellow to gree...

Claude, Yeah, I just wanted the wired cable as a backup solution. The cable is only $20 and with shipping, it came to only $23 in the US. There will also be a time in the future on a trip when my Nokia 770 fails, or it runs out of batteries, or there is too much bluetooth interference in an area... ...

Hey guys, Wow... that's a lot of info to digest. The general consensus seemed to be that I didn't need VCC to be hooked up. I already had Tx/Rx hooked up with the resistors, and I already had the TTL's black wire hooked up to ground on the Orion. So basically, I just cut the bad soldering job I did ...

TTL-232R Not working....

Ok gurus, As a cheap quick alternative to the "wireless" solution, I thought it would be fun to try the "easier" approach and buy the $20 TTL-232R (5v variant) cable for a direct hookup with the Orion from a laptop. Normally I wouldn't do this because I'm horrible with a soldering iron, but because ...

Claude, Thanks for the time putting together the options study. So far it looks like there are only two options on the board. I have already looked into the ursaminor option. Besides being very expensive, they are also very unaccommodating. Basically they want me to wire a lot of money to a company ...

Ok guys, You got me thinking Frédéric... so I indeed rechecked the pins that the 350D wanted - and again, I was correct - base and middle do AF and base and tip do fire. So I just want base and tip to short from the Teletrack. You guys were hinting that the Teletrack is just a 2 conductor jack - so ...

Trigger with Teletrack and Digital Rebel XT (Canon 350D)

Hi experts, I didn't get any such triggering cable with my Teletrack, and I'm still in a holding pattern waiting for Tronisoft to deliver their kit. While I am waiting, I decided to see if the triggering was working with the Teletrack and my Canon Digital Rebel XT. I see the postings about the 2.5mm...
