I have had an FZ20, and want to order the DMW-RS1 remote shutter

Does anyone know the length of the cable? Is it longer than 10 feet?

Without measuring its only about 4 ft.

Here is one by Phayee that is the same length but has a 40 ft. extension

On the the DMW-RS1, 4 ft is close.

From the connector plug to the Remote Shutter button it's 3 ft 6 inches, exactly.

I have a new one I can't use. Forgot to check my FZ15 before I ordered it (dumb). If anyone wants to contact me.

If you're at all handy with electronics/circuitry, you could make one yourself for next to nothing. Let me know if you're interested.

the phayee remotes are only about $15, and save you the hassle of fooling with wiring, soldering, finding components, etc. and if they don't work, you can send 'em back for a replacement...

I didn't suggest making a remote as a means of being thrifty. For those of us who like to build things and have easy access to materials/tools for such projects, you get a certain amount of satisfaction that $15 cannot buy.

Then again, I've always been the type who would attempt building my own variants of products commercially available, regardless of how cheap they were. Just the way I go about things, I guess...:?.

No doubt, if you're not into that kind of stuff, $15 is very cheap and makes it readily available.

iknow where you're coming from, Rhombuss... i was an electronics tech for years, and have made a number of li'l gadgets myself. it is enjoyable... but unless you have access to the tools and parts, and know how to use them, it's not terribly practical...

$30 bucks does seem like a rip off for a plastic button and a piece of wire. I have one, that I bought a year ago from Panasonic, and I was complaining that it was $22. I would go with the Phayee, I love that guy, almost wish therewas a need for adapters on the FZ30. My FZ20 with his adapter looks so professional. I am going to miss that camera (well...not the results it produced).
