You can now trigger your camera’s shutter hands-free with this compact mouth activated remote shutter release. The Blow Switch (a micro-switch/diaphragm combination) is about the size of your thumb and can be positioned almost anywhere on the helmet. To trigger the still camera you simply blow lightly into the small diameter hose that you route down to your lips. Short puffs into the hose fire off single shots while a constant blowing pressure will yield continuous shooting.
To use the Blow Switch your camera must accept a remote shutter release and you must have the wired plug-in to fit your particular camera. To install simply cut your shutter release’s button off and solder the two wires that trip your camera’s shutter to the two terminals on the Blow Switch’s micro-switch. The kit includes the micro-switch/diaphragm unit, pressure hosing and installation instructions.
If your still camera accepts the 2.5mm plug, you can add the plug and cable from the Related Products section. The 2.5mm Stereo Plug with 6′ Cable is compatible with the blow switch. It fits many of the cameras used by camera flyers including most of the popular Canon series cameras accepting the E3 plug. The molded plastic plug housing has a 6 foot long, 3-connector wire cable so it’s ready to solder on the switch.
