Fotosnaiper shutter release adaptation

Hello,

I'm really considering to buy a fotosnaiper fs-122(same as fs-12 but with a zenit 122s attached), and I was just wondering if an adapter exists/existed from mechanical shutter release (I hope that fotosnaiper's shutter release is not a special one) to pentax wire controller ; and if not, if I could maybe do something else to avoid moving my fingers from the trigger to take a shot, that would be kind of stupid to have a trigger and not using it.

(I apologize for my approximative english, it's not my native language )
Ps: I hope I submitted this in the right category...

First, your English is a lot better than my French.

Second, I don't think there is any existing adapter you can buy. So it will have to be Do It Yourself.

Third, Pentax (Digital) cable release uses the same connector and wiring as Canon so you can use any of the following as a guide.

Hope this helps.

This helps indeed ! I saw for the guide Thierry Hacquard made, but not the others so thanks ! Apparentely, not a lot of people though of it, I can barely find anything on the web related to this...

I'll eventually try and hopefully it'll work
