Yeah, I know, you can buy a remote cable from Panasonic for $60 or so, and eBay clones for a lot cheaper. But I wanted to make my own, so I could configure it for various kinds of releases. Plus it just looks gnarly: My homebuilt gizmo will let me fire my G1's shutter by pressing a button; by connecting some kind of pressure or trip switch to binding posts on the back; or by plugging in a PocketWizard. I can hook it up using 3.5mm stereo patch cables, which connect to the G1 via a $10 cell-phone adapter: Full schematic plus a meandering narrative are available on my blog. So if you're wondering what you're going to do with your G1 once you've got a GH1 or G2 or whatever, here's one answer: turn it into your remote-control "assistant!"
