Pinout for USB / A/V connector on Nikon CoolPix 5600 and similar cameras

I recently purchased a Coolpix 5600 (5.1 Mp) from Circuit City for use on a KAP rig. KAP or Kite Aerial Photography is where you lift a camera into the air with a kite and take pictures from above. Anyway when I got it home and started playing with it I noticed that the same connection port is used for both the USB and A/V output cables. I have decided to use the A/V output to provide a live view of the cameras vison on the ground with a wireless video transmiter. This has inspired me to question what else can be controled with this port. one thing I would love to be able to do is trigger the "shutter" electronicly through the cable. If I could find the pinout for that plug then mabee one or two of the pins would control the autofocus and shutter allowing me to take pictures without a servo to hit the button.
