Non-Canon Camera Trigger Based on Distance

Dear All,

I am developing UAV for Mapping. I use Canon Camera (SX260HS)+CHDK to trigger the camera based on time interval (intervalometer script) and based on distance (E38 script), both was working well.

Now, I want to use another brand of camera (i.e., Sony, Nikon, Canon without CHDK..etc) but I still have no idea how to trigger it. I have read there are part/component who could trigger with infrared, but I put it as a last option.

I want to modify camera connection by cable to PixHawk and setup the camera trigger based on distance in Mission Planner. If somebody already did it and success, please share the wiring diagram.. 

Thanks in advance...
