Camera Opto-Switch Kit

COS

 

Discontinued...to be replaced with updated version.

The Camera Opto-Switch allows our trigger circuits to actuate an electronic camera while providing complete electrical isolation for the camera. Here's what you need for a complete Opto-Switch.

  • The switch box kit
  • A shutter release cable for your camera

The Camera Opto-Switch has toggles for focus and shutter operations, a pushbutton for manual operation of the shutter, and an optoisolator for complete electrical isolation between the trigger circuit and the camera. The kit comes unassembled. Soldering is required for the assembly, and holes must be drilled in the box lid for components unless you select the drilled option. A layout template is provided. See the assembly instructions.

 

For information on which HiViz.com trigger circuits require an Opto-Switch, see this chart.

For a complete Camera Opto-Switch, order both the switch box and the cable for your camera. If you have more than one type of camera, you can order a cable for each one, but the same switch box will work for all cameras.
