Shopping list for remote control
Canon EOS Elan IIE / EOS 50E
These are the parts I used in my remote control. Where possible, I have included item codes and prices. The prices are correct as of January 1998. Given the nature of the components I don't expect their prices will change much, but if they do, let me know and I will update this page.
I've also included a list of the tools I used.
Components used in the remote
Note that it's often easier to buy stereo headphone cable with a 3.5mm plug and socket already fitted. In this case, there's no need to buy the stereo plug listed above.
You can extend the remote using a stereo 1/8" (3.5mm) mini plug to mini jack cable. A 6ft cable of this type costs $3.95 at Fry's Electronics.
