    Does anyone know which Panasonic remote release will work with the GX-1? When I research on Amazon it is really unclear which one works or even if there is one. :confused: 

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Try these options

    Any of the Panasonic wired remotes will work. While the styles vary, they all use the same basic circuit. I built this one back in the FZ50 days. The references to the wireless control were for a wireless controller I built for $11 - still using it!

    Just substitute some simple normally open push buttons. The connecting cord is easily found at "Dollar Stores" that sell the cheep-e cellular headsets. The old Nokia phones used the same plug. Just cut off the earpiece and wire it up.
