I hope this is the right place to ask (bear in mind this is my first post). I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice? I'd really like to be able to release my camera's shutter remotely without having to use the timer. There are loads of times when I want to be close to the subject of a shot (or in the shot myself) rather than behind the camera. I'm using the auto timer, but it would be great to be able to use some kind of device to release the shutter remotely. One problem is I only have a point-and-shoot camera. (Canon PowerShot SD800/Ixus 850.) It's not exactly a professional camera, but for my purposes it's perfect because I can take it everywhere I go so I never miss a great photo wherever I am. So is there anything I could use to achieve this? My ideal would be a short cable for working near the camera and a remote for working farther away from the camera. And it would be capable of holding the shutter down for continuous shooting. Any thoughts?
