Bit the bullet

Discussion in 'Panasonic Cameras' started by ddb, Jul 6, 2010.

  1. Since the local camera store didn't have a complete G1 kit, I ordered one from Amazon first thing this morning. It should be here by the weekend. I'm now looking at some accessories to order. I shoot from a tripod a lot and need a cable release. Is this the right one for the G1 - Panasonic DMW-RSL1 Remote Shutter Release? It says it is for Panasonic DSLR and the FZ50. No mention of the G series.

    Congrats on your purchase! You can buy a generic cable remote off eBay for much cheaper, and it works fine.

    You will have fun with the G1. I bought a remote release on eBay for my G1. It is a simple switch so not much to go wrong. It is also compatible with the FZ50. Mine is a Pixel brand - model RC-201.
     
  5. Never think of ebay so thanks for the reminder. Just ordered one for only $5.99 plus free shipping. Coming from Hong Kong so it will probably take two weeks to arrive, but the price is sure right.
