G16 wireless shutter release?

Hi there,

 

I love my G16, but as my skills grow I wonder if I'm bumping into the ceiling on it.....

 

First, does the G16 have IR capability that I can't seem to find? I love the star feature and a wireless remote would make it all that much better. I can't seem to find it under self-timers and thinking I might be out of luck.

 

Thanks in advance for any help or advice!

No you are not out of luck, facing the back of the camera on the right side under a cover is a remote shutter jack that accepts wired remote switches like the Canon RS 60E3 which I have as well as other wireless remotes like Vivitar makes which I also have.

Basically you need a receiver with a 2.5mm plug

 

Do not lose faith Sara that is an awesome camera!

 

If you haven't already downloaded the full manual for it here is the link
