    other than the pricy panasonic remote, has anyone here successfully used any of the other ones around ebay or elsewhere on their gf1?

    If the USB connector is the same as that on the E-Ps, then they work fine.

    Cheers

    Oh that's kind of nice.. My components arrived last week, I am going to make my own one when I get some free time.. probably won't have a timer on it for now.

    I bought the same one from a different seller (everybody seems to sell these), and I still haven't been able to make it work reliably :mad:

    That's the one I have (different eBay seller, same product). Works fine on my G1, and I've also tested it in a shop on a GF1. One thing I didn't like about the GF1 in this regard is the plastic door that covers the remote/HDMI/USB ports: I'd be worried about it eventually breaking in the field (the G1/etc have a flexible rubber cover).

    you can try at Gadget Infinity, they also have wireless shutters. Haven't try it myself though. :smile:

    That one should be fine. Obviously the advantages of the fancier ones include the intervalometer (useful for timelapses, and even for bracketed timelapses).

    I had the GF1 and Digilux 2 together for a short period of time. For the wonderful D2 I had the fantastic radiocontrolled remote. It should work on the GF1 too, but it doesn't. Now I have a simple cable remote. Just a switch. Works.

    just wanted to mention that the shutter release arrived. it's fairly frills-free, but works great, both for pre-focus and shooting the pics. must be sure it's plugged all the way in - in my case, i originally thought it didn't work, but turned out it just needed to be pushed in just a little further.

    i'm pretty stoked :)

    And if the one I have would work then it would be free...
    - But I agree interval would be nice (if it is not on your camera)
