remote shutter for Panasonic GH1 not working

Hi everybody

With my Sony Alpha100 the remote shutter on the Merlin/Orion is working fine.

With the Lumix GH1 the shutter doesn't work at all. If have measured the cable, nothing seems wrong.
If I use my HAMA remote control for Panasonic the shutter is working fine.

Panasonic values:

No action : R = 36 + 2.7 + 2 = 40.7K Ohms
Focus : R = 2.7 + 2 = 4.7K Ohms
Focus and shutter : R = 2 K Ohms


I don't know the values from Merlin/Orion.

Thanks for help.

Hi again

Kolor has manufactured a new trigger cable with a black box in the middel. I suppose that theres are some resistors inside. They shipped me the new cable. The problem is solved.
