Wireless Remote ("Cable Release")

In the old days one used a cable release to trigger the camera when using slow shutter speeds on a tripod or to include oneself in the image.  This camera has no provision for a cable release but does support a wireless remote that serves the same purpose.  Surprisingly, they're not very expensive, though there are a number to choose from.  For me the best choice was the one that allows immediate firing or a two second delay.  This one comes with a clip that threads onto the camera strap so the remote may be stored within easy reach.

The value comes from being able to fire the camera without touching it, for less vibration or for those times when you are in the picture and cannot reach the shutter button.
