Shutter release option

I would like to use my Sony RX10 M3 with Helicon Remote, I am not bothered about controlling aperture, shutter, EV or ISO via HR this could all be set up manually.

Re: USB-RS232

Hi Stas,
Turned out to be the converter, I obtained the Farnell item and it worked first time.
Many thanks for your support which is appreciated.

Re: USB-RS232

Ok it's possible then that the cheap Ebay £5 usb converter could be the problem, I will get the Farnell device and hope that solves the problem.
Thanks for the reply

Regards
Jim

Re: USB-RS232

Thank you I have ordered one.
Could you confirm one further thing please?
Am I right in assuming that when using a Trinamic stepper this will be connected to one USB port and the camera is connected to another USB port in order to handle the shutter operation?
