Motion Control – Part 5: Cables
There are a bunch of different cables needed to connect the controller, camera and perhaps additional equipment like a pan/tilt head and its controller. When I was still waiting for my rail and controller's parts to arrive, I started with building the shutter cables (2.5mm jack and N3 - for Canon EOS 500D and 6D). I used the 2.5mm stereo jack with a cable I have ordered and soldered on a 3.5mm stereo jack on the other side. Pretty easy. This one's for the 500D and similar models.
