I tried to find a remote cord over the internet for my digital camera, but I failed in finding one.

I am looking for something like http://www.amazon.com/NIKON-MC-36-Mu.../dp/B000BY9CUY for the time-lapse option.

I have attached the reference in the manual.

Please send me a link, a type or anything !

Actually, Fuji did offer a remote control cable for this model at one time. But I just checked the Fuji website and there are no accessories listed for the 9000/9500 anymore. I purchased one of the remote control cables when they were available. It simply plugs into the same USB port that you use to connect the camera to your computer to download pictures. It isn't a very high-tech device. You push the button to the first click to activate the autofocus, then push it a little further to take a picture. It's as simple as that. By some strange coincidence I received two shipments when I ordered mine, and I do have an extra that I have not opened. As far as I know, the 9000/9500 is the only non-dSLR Fuji model that had that capability. And unfortunately it looks as though they are not offering that accessory now.

The other alternative is to use just a simple standard mechanical cable release that screws into the socket as shown in the diagram. That does not require any special accessory from Fuji. Any camera shop will have a variety of cable releases of different lengths that will attach to that socket.

For a lot of mine landscape photography I don't use any cable release at all. I simply set the camera on a tripod, composed the image, and then use the 2-second timer. That works very for me.

Hi Johess,

I would be very happy to buy your spare if it were suitable for a Fuji S9100/9600.

Email me at [email protected].

Note: I do live in Spain

Hi, it's me again.

I've found these on the internet. There seems to be a working USB remote shutter release cord, as you can see here:

Does anyone know how this cord works ? Maybe I can do a modified version of it for time-lapse purposes. Any help is appreciated.

It probably works very much the same as I described in my previous message in this thread. There isn't any kind of menu option that you need to set. Just plug it in, and it will do its thing. What do you mean when you say that maybe you can modify it for time lapse photography?

I just bought this usb shutter release. It's about $20 shipped, but it's from Hong Kong, so it'll probably be a couple weeks before I get to play around with it. I got it because I'm trying to take some macro shots with stacked Raynox lenses and it's way too hard for me to keep my hands steady enough and I hate having to reset the delay timer for every shot.

I'm happy to report back that the usb remote cord works perfectly. At partial depression it causes my S9000 to autofocus and use the focus assist light. At full depression it takes the picture. I used it to take a couple pictures in full manual mode with 15 & 30 second exposures, and also in aperture priority mode with and without flash.

If you're thinking about getting a remote cord, this is a good option that only costs $22 shipped.

After 2 years of searching, I've found what I was looking for, an intervalometer for my camera.

This is it:

Ordered it on ebay (cheaper). Thanks for the replies.
