There’s way more of these than you’d expect…

SLR camera remote control sockets

Triggertrap has long been operating the world’s most complete list of SLR cameras and which remote control sockets they use. The list has already been copied quite a few times, so we figured it might be useful to some of you.

As Triggertrap is now going out of business, we have decided to make this list available for everybody to use.

The document is available as a Google Doc here. Each camera has a remote control socket listed.

Where can you get the cables?

Pixel does a line of connection cables that covers most bases.

What the plugs look like

There’s a few more I don’t have photos for at the moment…

  • S2 is Sony’s socket that looks like a Micro USB, but isn’t — it has more than 10 leads (!) inside the cable, which makes this plug stupidly expensive to make.
  • NX is Samsung’s connector. It also looks like a Micro USB socket, but isn’t compatible with Sony’s S2.
  • R9 is used by some FujiFilm cameras. It also looks like a Micro USB socket, but isn’t compatible with Sony’s S2 or Samsung’s NX. Thanks Fujifilm.
