Uncover the N3 connector, set the camera to mirror lockup and manual
Then touch lightly the 3 connectors with the tip of the plug. The
first time it will raise the mirror. The second it will fire the camera.
It is as good as a remote release, for those times you forgot to bring
it along, but still carry your headphones. It of course requires 2
operations instead of 1, but the camera shakes way less.
