When I ask for one at my local photo store, do I ask for a standard shutter cable release or is it a bit more specific to the Fuji range? I've never used a cable before and my tripod isn't as rock solid as I would like so I figured a cable might give me some more stability.

Thanks

A standard shutter release cable is what you require.

I have several from film camera days, and they all work fine on my S9500.

Thanks Baz, I was hoping that was the case.

Cheers

You might want to consider an air-bulb type. They are light, have a beautiful soft action and you can make the air tube as long as you like (within reason). Some wire-type cable releases are pretty [email protected], they stick .. jerk ... jam .. bend .. break .. fray .. pop out etc
Usually not to hard to find.

:-)you could always try doing it my way. strip down the camera and install a sub miniature plug connected across the shutter pushbutton, which in turn is connected to a FM receiver (300 ft range). Then using the A/V out into a 2.4 Ghz transmitter.

This allows you to focus/shoot and look at the EVF @ 300 ft, the only problem is the warranty !! (please do not try if you do not have an understanding of manufacturing techniques and electronics
