Default Remote Shutter Release...

... or the lack therof...

My research is leading me to believe that none of the "hybrid" or "bridge" type cameras are available with the option of using a remote shutter release. Or I could be surprisingly mistaken ?

For those of you who regularily use a tripod or play with time release photos.... is this enough to make a deal breaker, is there a workaround or maybe it's just not necessary ?

Your thought please...

I have an Oly SP570. I am using a wired release I got when I had the SP550. I picked it up from eBay for something like $5-6. It works just fine with my 570 and my E-620. I also have a wireless release I got from Gadget Infinity. It, too, works just fine with both of my Olys. If you don't want to mess with a remote release, use your timer.

Thanx GJ, maybe there is hope yet.... I don't know if the timer will do the trick every time, but it's an alternative none the less.

the timer works just fine on my canon sx20. Although i am thinking about buying a cheap wired shutter.

It was never a deal breaker.
