“Mid level digital cameras usually don’t allow for remote shutter control. This Frankenstein addition will trigger the shutter on any camera. It was built with time-lapse movies in mind.”Link.

    Another but probably less robust way to do this is to just velcro a small RC servo right over the shutter button. I did this for my KAP rig so that I can use an airplane radio to flip the switch. The servo is plastic so it won’t damage the shutter though it requires some adjusting to make sure it triggers every time.
