I guess I should know this by looking at the prices. I was convinced I didn't have one but my husband kept saying we had one from our old video camera. I got it out today and used it in the eve to take some pictures. First...I need a remote. I could not press the shutter without the whole thing shaking a little with left my first pics blurred...then I used the timer which is a pain. This one seems thin and flimsy. Would the best thing be to go into a camera store and try different ones?
