This is perhaps the most silly and amusing thing I have for the camera; a remote shutter release. I got it today and let me tell you, nothing has amused me so much in a distressingly long time. I walked around my house trying to gauge how far away I can be to have it work and laughed like a fool every time it worked.
It's Christmas come early for the cam anyway, as I finally got my first tripod. Gasp! Horror! I too, am not sure how long I survived without one, but we'll see how I take to it. I have a general aversion to any kind of 'cheating' but I guess the tripod is generally viewed as morally upright. Unlike photoshop.
Off I go to take some night shots from far away from my camera!
