Hi, I am thinking of the Canon S120 to purchase. What I can not find is whether or not the camera supports either a wired or wireless shutter switch. Even using a tripod my hand can shake enough when pushing down on the shutter button and blurs the picture especially if taking a night shot with longer shutter speed. If this camera does not, what camera similar in functions and what not should I be looking at?

Thanks

First the bad news: I'm pretty sure there's no way to trigger the S120's shutter remotely because a) Gordon's review specifically notes the lack of wireless capability, and b) I'm not aware of any wired remotes for Canons point-and-shoot models, mostly just DSLRs. (Although, the RS60E3 also lists the G1 X and G16 as compatible. So you might consider one of those cameras.)

Or, as long as exact timing isn't necessary, you should be able to get comparable results with the self-timer function (which Gordon's review does briefly mention, so I'm assuming the S120 has one).

HTH - Mark
