I have read where you can run three wires out of the camera an jumper 1 and 2 together outside of the camera.  When I have the wires disconnected the camera works independently but when I solder them to the female plug the camera will fire automatically without the green light "locking" in the viewfinder.  Am I using the wrong hardware?  I'm using RS-274-1565.  This is the female side of the connection with tree posts.  It looks like 2 of the three posts are connected.  I thought they would only connect with the male piece inserted.  Help?

Hi Possum,
That part# is a DC power jack with a normally closed switch (that's why 3 connections - 2 of which are the normally closed switch)
You need a stereo audio jack like RS part # 274-274 or similar.

Thanks Archilochus! That's what I needed to know.  Might never need a camera in the field (I usually carry one of those disposables for quick pics) but it's nice to have one on the property if I did.
