I'm getting my Sony HX100v in a couple of weeks and it was a hard decision between that and the Panasonic FZ150.

The one thing I'm going to miss and really do want from the FZ150 is the ability to add a remote for the shutter release. I want the extra zoom and Pano features of the HX100v so that was my tipping point.

Have not been able to find an easy way to get this done. Why hasn't Sony made a shutter release for it's P&S?

If anyone has any ideas on how I can get a shutter release for the Sony HX100v it would be amazing. Thanks!

Point and Shoots don't tend to have the option because they are intended for consumers, the less serious of photographers.

^ What he said...

How about self timer? Most P&S's come with that. Would that suit your needs?

The self timer is an excellent alternative.

Canon500D - Fuji's RR-80 remote shutter release works with the S9500, S9600, IS-1, X-S1, HS25EXR, HS28EXR, HS30EXR, HS33EXR - and from the Previews on YouTube there's another new one for the new "Premium Bridge Camera" X-S1 that has 'Timer' and 'Bulb' functions as well.

I can't find out whether the RR-80 or the new one for the X-S1 works for the X-100 / X-10 in the X-Series, though.

The X-S1 uses the X-series 2/3-in EXR-CMOS sensor in 12Mpix mode - but still manages 26x / 23-624mm equiv. zoom - so is somewhat interesting.

Regards, Dave.
