I want a wireless remote shutter control with a flash shoe on top, i am making a wood stock for my canon slr to suit the macro lens with the ringflash on. i do not want the side panel open with the shutter cable coming out, the trigger will be built in if its small enough,anyone heard of such a device

Nope but if find one let me know as I've been after the same thing for the same reasons almost....
Sorry - I don't understand the statement.
But I have seen remote shutter releases that double as remote flash triggers - would two of these on the same channel work for you?
Shouldn't be too difficult to improvise. Calumet sell triple-flash brackets. Fit one of those on to your camera hotshoe. Put the wireless shutter control on to one of the shoes and the flash unit on to the other. Or maybe, like Jack, I am failing to understand the statement. With nikons, I would simply plug the wireless slave into the CR socket on the front of the camera and have the ring flash control on the hotshoe. If I also wanted off-camera flash, I would have the flash master on the hotshoe. Wouldn't want both the SR wireless and the flash wireless to be on the same frequency, though.
i want to use the camera on a rifle type stock for macro work in the field, the ring flash has to go into the hotshoe, i wondered if there was a remote trigger that has a hot shoe on it. i will place the trigger part in the stock, built in
Check out the Pixel Pro " Rook " models, They are flash triggers, That also act as remote shutter releases.....
I know how good they are, Work extremely well long range, Because we use them for all sorts of special set ups.....
Whats more, And again something we find very usefull, If you have a Canon & Nikon set, You can fire a Canon Speedlight & a Nikon speedlight, From either a Canon or Nikon camera, With the Canon or Nikon transmitter attached, Makes our mix of Nikon & Canon kit a great deal more flexible....!!!!!
The company linked to is great to deal with by the way.....
A typical set up might be Canon 5D/II with Rook transmitter, A Canon 580 speedlight on Canon reciever, A second reciever for Nikon spec, With an Nikon SB-800 speedlight, Set to the same channel as the Canon bits, Sometimes a Canon 430 speedlight on the transmitter on the camera, Then fire the camera and all three speedlight fire also.....!!!!
Should you need that might light.....
Add to above, Unlike the realy cheap and nasty triggers, These Pixel Pro Rooks do not need a cable going to your Sync socket on the camera, To make a remote camera shutter trigger you need to use the provided lead from the Rook on the hot shoe, To where ever your remote port is located, Obviously for this operation you need to mount the Rook reciever unit, To the camera that is being fired remotely.......
To be honest its far easier to do, Than it is to explain......LOL.....
I'd say that this is the very thing your looking for " Ade ".... And they are not a rip off price either.....
If you connect a flash to one remote flash head and the shutter to the other- they won't be sync'ed - unless those pixel rooks specifically account for that and perform the sync.
