Hi Folks,

Has anybody had a go at making theire own wired remote for fz20 or equivald Lumix camera?

I received this answer yesterday (Friday, Oct. 8):
At this time this accessory is not supplied by us. We do not have yet
received information from the factory when it will be available.
I can add your name to our list and advise when it will be available to back

I apologize for any inconvenience this may caused you and I thank you for
your patience

The following customer has a parts-related question.
Part: Remote shutter release for dmcfz20
Model Number: dmw-rs1

This item is listed in the camera's handbookj but dos not appear on your
How can I order it?

Also see: http://tinyurl.com/6jrog which I believe is a Steve's Digicam page.
I had to send this link to Customer Service USA as they didn't have a clue either.
The fact that it exists for the dmc-lc1 didn't seem to register with
customer service.
On Monday (tomorrow) I will call part department to see if the wired remote for the LC1
will work on the FZ20 (I doubt if they would know though). The part number
for the LC1 is listed as VYC0913 and not dmw-rs1 as the website says.

Nice woman at parts (Lucy) got back to be with the below snip. I ordered the part and the site indicates part's estimated arriveal to USA to be Nov. 25. The remote is $14.98 plus s&h and tax...$21.13 total.
Sure beats price of Nikon remotes although they usually include a pointless zoom function.
Hope this helps.
The part number DMW-RS1 has been replaced with VYC0913, which is currently on back order with the factory for 6-8 weeks. The pricing is $14.98. There is also a $5.95 shipping/handling fee with in the US, as well as your local taxes, attached to this order. Orders placed on our website at www.pasc.panasonic.com may offer up to 20% off of freight handling.

You may also either call (800) 833-9626 (or (253) 395-7343) or contact me with your credit card and shipping information, however the freight handling discount will not be available

Thank you for your inquiry,
National Parts Center
