Andrew created a good hack to make the magic happen, using arduino, a remote and a servo. This way he can have a remote for his old fashioned ”cable” release Fuji X100 Camera (works also for other brands like Leica).

He mounted a servo in a small enclosure that pushes on the cable firing the camera shutter. This servo is controlled by and Arduino that triggers the servo when it gets the command from the wireless remote.
