Hey Folks,I'm a newcomer to the forums.For months I have just been reading and learning,what a great site.I built my 1st cam. back in March and have been having a ball w/ it ever since.I'm almost done w/ my 2nd cam. and have run into a bit of a problem.Everything is wired up and hooked up,all tests were good as I progressed while building until now.When I turn the unit on the walk test light works just the way it should,but,when I flick the DPDT switch to cam.it immediatelly takes a pic. and then won't take any more.
          This stuff is all still pretty new to me so any help is greatly appreciated.Thanks and Take Care,  Curt}---->

Hi Guru - It sounds like you soldered the shutter wire to the always closed side of the Reed Relay.  If you move it to the always open side, it sould work okay.
