Default Super-zoom with shutter remote

Hello,

I use a Panasonic FZ20. It has a shutter remote and auto zoom(12x)

I need this as I'm a quadrplegic and have trouble pushing a normal shutter and turning a manual zoom.

Does anyone know a super zoom, 12x or greater, with these functions?

The latest releases of the Panasonc Lumix don't have these functions, nor do others, it seems.

Thanking you in advance.

The Canon SX1 does have a remote control for zoom and shutter which might be worth looking at, I'm not sure about any other options.

Hoju-

I believe the Sony HX-1 also has a remote control as well.

Thanks very much, Sarah and Mark.

I'm not sure about the Sony either, Sarah. I couldn't find documentation showing the use of shutter remote.

The Canon uses a wire less remote which you have to hold in front of the camera. this may be a possibility.

Or I should learn to use a timer while holding the camera.
