Remote Control for MX300

Hi,

I'm looking for a Remote, that I can attach to the arm of my Tripod. I have (or will have next week) the 055CL Tripod with the 128RC Head from Manfrotto. Manfrotto have a LANC remote but only for Canon and Sony Cams. Panasonic provides a Tripod with a Remote for Basic Functions, but the Tripod itself can't compare with the Manfrotto.

Any Ideas, where to get such a remote, or if something like this exists at all?

Did you verify whether the RC when attached to the tripod arm is still able to control your cam? If you have an RC with your MX300 use that one, and just get a cheap universal learning remote control for yr other applications

Unfortunately for us MX users, there is no Standard jack remote control that is wired to the cam. One great suggestion from Steven Khong which I have tried and found usable is to attach a fiber-optic cable (used for digital audio) and connect to the IR remote control supplied with the cam.

The connections are a bit tricky, I haven't found a fantastically good idea. DIY possibility includes using a large 'bulldog' clip with a hole drilled and glue gun to secure the optical cable to the clip on the remote end. For the camera end, you may need a base (arm for external flash on any SLR camera) secured to the tripod mount and secure the optical cable to point into the IR receiver.

The optical cable certainly works, I have tried by keeping things in place by my hands.
