Default Shutter Release Servo Trigger / Timer

Hi,

Im looking for a device to activate a servo to give shutter release every second on My Panasonic LX3. I heard of shutterbug, but cant find a supplier.

I can supply the device with 5V from my bec and then need it to send a signal to the servo to push the shutter button every second or so for the duration of the flight.

I can arrange the mechanical installation easily enough I think utilisiong the hotshoe mount.

Does anyone know a device I can use and where I can buy one? Or if anyone has such a thing for sale?

Cheers

Default shutter push

Here is a little circuit I made a few years ago. I had forgotten about it, until I read your post.
The chip is a PIC12F675. It moved a servo slowly between two positions, and then returned quickly, and stopped for two seconds. The idea being to allow the auto focus time to work.
It also blinked a LED to show when it was taking a photo.
The chip would support a few pots, so it would be possible to add travel adjustment and delay time control.
