Their is no + or - coming off the relay.  All it does is close the circuit.  You don't want any power going to the cam or you will fry it..

I try to use the green wire from the relay to connect to the #4 ground of the camera.  I always use green as a ground.  That keeps the color code "green" as easily identifiable as being standard for wiring to the ground, so when I am troubleshooting I know exactly where the wire is going.  bat
