Nokia Handsfree 300D shutter release?

Edit My Images
Has anyone tried this?

I have been attempting to use a Nokia handsfree kit as a shutter release for the Canon. I know this has worked for Matty and a few other people but I cant seem to get it to work. I have the kit with the mute button, I have cut off the ear piece but it still wont work.

Can any one that has done this post an image of their set up so I can make sure i definately have the right kit.
A who do what?????

Are you saying that one of those handsfree cables (that I have probably 2/3 about the house) can be used as a shutter release that I've just spent £20 on??????

Will try later when I get home and let you know how I get on!
I know that Matty has done this successfully, maybe he will drop by to offer an account of his personal experiance to help sort out your problem. I will point him in this direction later when he is online.
Tis true, it worked for me, the only thing i can think of is that maybe my camera has a more up to date firmware, though i cant see how that makes a difference.

the label one the hands-free says....Hama 32791 - Universal/Nokia 8810

will get a pic too
Hmm. The one i have from Virgin is 32793 must be slightly different in some way.

I updated the firmware and that didn't work.
any joy with this or do you need a pic?
Can you post a piccie? Going to try and pick the right one up tomorrow. My Infared remote has just arrived, but a cable release would be handy as well.
here it is...

you need to add 5 knackered handsfree kits to your sig Fungus old chum!

Going to put them on E-bay as rare items. That should pay for my next bit of kit.

Tried getting the right kit today. Non of the shops stocked the right set. They all had the three connection jack. :evil:
