Nokia Handsfree 300D shutter release?

Has anyone tried this?

I have been attempting to use a Nokia handsfree kit as a shutter release for the Canon. I know this has worked for Matty and a few other people but I cant seem to get it to work. I have the kit with the mute button, I have cut off the ear piece but it still wont work.

Can any one that has done this post an image of their set up so I can make sure i definately have the right kit.

A who do what?????

Are you saying that one of those handsfree cables (that I have probably 2/3 about the house) can be used as a shutter release that I've just spent 20 on??????

Will try later when I get home and let you know how I get on!

I know that Matty has done this successfully, maybe he will drop by to offer an account of his personal experiance to help sort out your problem. I will point him in this direction later when he is online.

Tis true, it worked for me, the only thing i can think of is that maybe my camera has a more up to date firmware, though i cant see how that makes a difference.

the label one the hands-free says....Hama 32791 - Universal/Nokia 8810

will get a pic too

Hmm. The one i have from Virgin is 32793 must be slightly different in some way.

I updated the firmware and that didn't work.

Going to put them on E-bay as rare items. That should pay for my next bit of kit.
