I have a degree in Electrical Engineering. Yeah, I'm one of those people... Anyway, a couple of years ago I made a basic remote shutter for my camera using two buttons and a switch, then stuffed it all into an empty film canister. It works great for my needs and is small enough I can always keep it in my camera bag.
However, a couple of weeks ago I was browsing online and came across Canon's digital remote. You know, the one where you can set interval times, number of exposures, and all that other stuff. I looked at the price and was stunned. I thought to myself, I bet I could make the exact same thing for 30 bucks! So, that's just what I'm doing. I had most of what I needed already, so after buying a small lcd display and one night of programming, I'm just about done with the prototype (I'm still waiting for a couple of parts I ordered to finish it completely). Then I'll have to solder it all together and stuff it into some sort of box. I'm still not quite sure how much I'll use it. I probably won't be taking it everywhere since it won't be as compact as my simple one. I might find some use for it one day though.
Yeah, I'm a nerd. Haha...
