Not sure if this is common knowledge but I have a Sankyo XL320 Super 8 camera that uses an "electronic remote" as opposed to a cable release. I don't have one but I did have luck using a wired remote from a panasonic vhs camcorder from the late 80s. Plugged it in and turned the camera to "R-L" (run lock?) and the remote worked perfectly. I'm not a fan of trigger only cameras as they tend to wobble a bit when you pull or release them on a tripod. Anyway if you're lucky enough like me to have or know of an old panasonic camcorder lying around and your camera uses the same type of wired remote give it a shot.

I've got a whole schwack of Sankyos, the em-40xl has been getting a lot of use lately..
I was curious about the remote jack on this thing.

I recently built one of these for use with a modular synth:

but it dawned on me that the pulse output could probably also trigger the sankyo.

anybody know anything about the REM jack on some of these Sankyo models?

clarification needed there..
I'd like to use that little intervalometer with some of the other Sankyo's I've got kickin around.. ES-44XL and XL-420 which don't have built-in intervalometers, but have remote jacks.

poking around on the forum a little more I think I found the answer..

The pinout on that remote is:
sleeve = common
ring = focus
tip = shutter


so it's a simple switch trigger... no external voltage nec..
cool cool.
