Hi all,

Just wondered if anyone could tell me if these things are universal, or do they vary from camera to camera.
I have a Fuji S7000, and so far I'm fairly pleased with it, but I would like to try shooting at night, and although I have a tripod, I would also like to use a release cable to ensure as little camera movement as possible.

Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Paul.

the cables vary from camera to camera, but as an alternative u can put the camera on timed release mode, so u press the shutter and 10 seconds later the shutter gets released.

Whether your camera can take a standard cable release or not depends on the camera  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

There is indeed a standard but many cameras (especially digital ones and highend SLRs require electronic ones that offer more features like built-in timers).

Even my low-end Nikon F65 has a 'remote control' shutter release feature. It's actually pretty cool!  Smile

Mind you, the thing's so small I have to be careful not to lose it!
