Infrared emitter

After having found this page about a "Multi Camera IR Control", I kept on looking for an IR led. I finally ended up in disassembling an old Philipps VCR remote control. Using the previously mentionned example script, I immediately was able to remotely take pictures with my Canon EOS 350D.
