It seems that I read in several places that persons were using a channel on their remote or R/C device to trigger the shutter of the helicopter mounted camera. There is a commercial triggering device called the Pocket Wizard that I have sent for information on to consider using to trigger ground bound camera shutters. Please comment on your triggering devices or methods and comment on the Pocket Wizard if you have used it.

What type of camera are you using? Does it have IR capabilities and or can you get a remote for it. Many camera makers offer connectors for using a "corded" remote control. If you have either of these capabilities you have many choices.

Pardon the brevity, a little short on time.

Camera Triggers
I have a number of cameras that all have the standard camera release threaded socket for a normal camera release cord. I also have a Kodak 6490 digital camera that I would like to use remotely. However, I am planning the purchase of new digital camera equipment that will be a DSLR (Canon, Kodak or Sigma). I am not certain about IR capabilities but that could probably be achieved through an accessory device. I do not know what a corded remote control is.

It's nothing special, just a camera remote that has a cord back to the camera instead of IR link.

For aerial photography these are often preferred, you can hack them to solder an electronic switch like one of these:

and not have to use a servo to trip the shutter.
