    My Canon G2 has an InfraRed remote shutter release. Is there any way I can
    find out what is the timing and frequency of the pulses it transmits? I hope
    to make a timer that will take an exposure every ten seconds, unattended,
    for a couple of hours at a birds' nest.
    I have made a timer from a circuit in a local electronics magazine that
    opens and closes a relay which turns on and off a remote from Hong Kong
    (less than $2 on eBay).
    Works well, but it is a bit of overkill. I am sure I can make something
    simple using a little Picaxe.
    Anyone know where I can find out what pulse sequence I must transmit?
    Any response will be appreciated.
