  1. The shutter release cable, supported by all Iconasys turntables, is a standard 2.5mm stereo cable with the pin-outs shown below:

  2. If your camera uses a 3.5mm cable, you can purchase a 2.5mm to 3.5mm converter, from places such as Amazon.  Here is one example:
    1. Cable Leader: 2.5mm Stereo Male to 3.5mm Stereo Female Adapter
    2. Amazon: 2.5mm Stereo Male to 3.5mm Stereo Female Adapter
  3. If your camera uses a different adapter for the shutter release, please contact your camera manufacturer and ask them about providing you a cable that adapts to the stereo triggering configuration shown above.  They should be able to provide you with the proper cable that converts the shutter, focus and ground signals from their camera to the standard stereo header.
  4. The trigger signals are controlled via an optically-isolated coupler as shown below.

  5. On the Platinum series, the software sends the focus signal first.  This is done by closing the switch between the focus (F) and common (C or ground).  
  6. On the Silver series the focus (F) is grounded as soon as the cable is inserted in the table.
  7. After the focus (F) is grounded, a few milliseconds later that shutter signal (S) is grounded.  
  8. Once the shutter (S) is grounded, and assuming that the focus (F) remains grounded, the camera is supposed to trigger.  
  9. The shutter release operation is ONLY supported inside the turntable controller software.  It is NOT supported by Shutter Stream, because Shutter Stream uses the USB connection to control the camera triggering.
  10. Open up the Turntable Controller and click on the Advanced settings, as shown above.
  11. Check the option to trigger the camera via shutter release before the turntable turns.
  12. To manually test the shutter release, click the "Shutter release" button, as underlined above.
