    Long answer:
    It really can't be done.
    We cant reassign the hardware buttons on windows phone.
    bit longer answer:

    The end user does not have the capabilities to remap hardware buttons, nor do normal store applications. One can indeed change the default camera app that corresponds to the two-step camera key, but not much else. Conflicts can become an issue. etc. but it is not unprecedented as many older devices can remap keys like the Palm Treo I own.

    You want some extension on the cord to trigger the camera on the 1020 while in front of the lens, yes?

    Get a gently used 520 for a minimal outlay of $ and pair it with your 1020 via Bluetooth and use this: Remote Viewfinder | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Also see the Project: Five2Oh link in my signature.

    Well it can be done if the API to capture volume up/down event is available for use to app devs, certainly cannot be implemented by 3rd party for the built-in camera app. This is where Apple wins in functionality

    Edit: Looks like volume button events cannot be captured by app devs
