I, too, would like some more explanation about what you want to do with the trigger.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I was curious too so I looked and found this video, capturing splashes into a glass of water. Basically you set up the laser pointing at the Pluto trigger, and if anything breaks the laser, it trips the shutter. Looks pretty neat.

How about just winding a wrap of duct tape over the button switch?
