Shutter Remotes for Panasonic Cameras
Using a camera shutter remote with your Panasonic digital camera allows you to take pictures from a distance without having to press the camera's own shutter button. Camera shutter remotes are very useful camera accessories that you can easily take with you every time you go out shooting.
Why Use a Shutter Remote?
Using a shutter remote allows you to take pictures from a distance. This is great for taking selfies but can also be useful for portraits or pet photos, as you can get out from behind the camera and interact with your subject. The other primary benefit is that using a remote eliminates camera shake. This is very useful for taking long exposure shots, so camera shutter remotes are often used for landscape photography and astrophotography.
Cable vs. Wireless Shutter Remotes
You can find both wireless and cable camera remote controls for Panasonic cameras. Wired shutter remotes for Panasonic cameras use a cable between the remote and the camera, while wireless remotes typically use an infrared signal. Going wireless frees you from the range of your cable so you can get further away, but the remotes need batteries and the signal can sometimes be overpowered by strong sunlight.
