    FZ20 Remote shutter release?

    Maybe i should know this (or should have checked before I bought one - but it's difficult to remember all requirements sometimes) as I have had an FZ20 for a few days now... but I can't seem to find anyway of operating the shutter release remotely. I would have thought that a camera that purports to being a serious model for photograhers would have this ability... either a shutter thread to take a cable release or some other method?

    If I have missed something obvious feel free to tell me

    Thanks Hawkeye - I just found that myself too (it is in the manual!!!)
    If anyone has a price anywhere for this it would be appreciated.

    Still think it would be easier - and less costly for the good old-fashioned thread in the shutter release.

    I ordered and have one from Panasonic. Ordered it under the 'accessories' list for the "DMC-LC1".

    The part number used to order it is "VYC0913", "wired shutter remote cont", "$14.98";
    and the part has "Panasonic DMW-RS1" marked on it.

    Ordered the part today.

    Was able to order it under part # DMW-RS1 (through the operator).

    Part is on back order till November 18.

    Thanks ... Mike

    Thanks again for the extra info. I'm in the UK so I don't think I can order from that site, but will check out the Panasonic UK site.

    As asked in the thread quoted in the previous post - does anyone know the length of the cable? I am assuming it will not be all that long... so again, not as useful as cameras with a thread on the shutter button - that allow me to operate the shutter from 10 metres away with my air release cable (useful for certain types of wildlife photography)

    Reply from Panasonic uk: "We do not as yet have a date for the marketing of the remote shutter release, unfortunately."
