In this case, you can't use the hand-controler to connect the Merlin head, but you can connect directly ... - Via a wired connection http://www.kolor.com/forum/t8410-usb-ttl-serial-inexpensive-option-solved-usa/p71700-2010-10-29-22-42-45?id=8410#p71700 -Via a BT connection: http://www.teleskop-austr...

Hello Oliver,

14,8 volts is not a problem nor for the BT module, nor for the Merlin nor for the T&C controler.
Just pay attention:
- not to invert polarity
AND
- remove all batteries inside the Merlin !!!

Running with 14,8 volts will slightly increase the speed of the Merlin !

Hello Thomas,

According your last observations, those are the RJ12 connectors and/or the small pcb where they are soldered who are defects

BUT this is much better to get a replacement of your head! :cool:

Yes Handy,

It is the same, but maybe too short ! You should make the right choice for CANON ... "Giga T Pro II Wireless Timer Remote for Canon"

To be safe, you can buy a "Hahnhel HRC 280" , right lenght but only "simple " wired remote !

This is not possible at the level of "stabilisation delay" but you can set a longer "fictive" exposition time in the "shutter plugin" ...
In this case of course you should not set your camera on "pause" !
