Lightbulb New trigger for BIG cameras SONY NEX-5, SONY A6000 etc

Hi guys! My name is Alex and I am designing a new trigger for big cameras that are often used for aerial photography. I am speaking mainly about SONY NEX-5 and SONY A6000(but NIKKON, CANON and all others should be supported as well). These things will be able to trigger the camera via IR port or using shutter-wires(if you are desperate enough to mod your cam).
It will also be able to memorize some info when triggering to its onboard flash chip(as for now, I consider 4Mbytes). That is to save GPS data or some IMU data which can be get using UART on this board.
And also it will supply camera with power through onboard DC-DC converter so that your camera can be connected to your main battery .

This shutter will work from 3S to 6S and will be easy to mount and use. All settings will be done via USB through some PC-based GUI.
I am designing it because I need it myself, but there is economical sense in making the first batch like 20-50 devices. So if you like the idea of such device, I can sell the 60-70% of the batch here to cover production costs. I assume this should be about 20-25 EUR for 1 piece.

Couple preproduction photos of it attached.
Best regards, Alex
