    Does it have a self-timer? My N60 does, don't know about the N50 though.

    Or else, just use the shutter release. If you're on a tripod to begin with, it doesn't really matter much whether you use a cable or not, unless you need to be positioned away from the camera.
    Just be gentle in the pressing, like you need to be anyway.

    There may be an electronic release (no cord or cable) used remotely just like a television control. If you Google the name/model of the camera but add the words 'test' or 'revue' you should be able to find out what is available. When I had a D70 the remote was a real pain to use, sometimes it worked, mostly it didn't. It seemed to need a precise angle from the front of the camera to get it to work semi reliably.


    UPDATEI have just had a look at a site called www.orphancameras.com and they have literally hundreds of camera manuals on line. I have looked at the N50/F50 and there is no mention of any sort of remote release for this model.

    There isn't any. You could use the self timer though.

    Here's what you need http://www.bristolcameras.co.uk/p-ca...al-cameras.htm, several companys make similar adaptors and there must be many stores in the U.S. who stock them.

    Or you can use cheap RF triggers. Buy a pair, put one reciever/transciever on the hot shoe of the camera and now you can use it remotely.

    Use THIS . It's cheap, plus distance wont be a problem anymore. It focuses too if you use AF lense.

    The remote looks cool but the N50 doesnt have a jack for it.

    Far as i remember timer will Open the shutter on B and keep it open until you lightly depress the shutter.
