Point and shoot digitals with remote shutter???

    I'm looking to build up a stereoscopic shooting rig and would like to
    find a pair of identical point and shoot cameras for the job.
    Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot in the way of P&S
    digital cameras that have remote wired or wireless shutter release
    capability.

    I know that the Canon G10 supports a wired remote, and while I would
    love to get a pair of them and the remote shutter releases, they are
    pricey. I was hoping for something more like <= $250 each.
    I would prefer a relatively recent camera (within 1-2 years of now/
    2009) with good image quality and controls and with good video quality
    at 640x480 @ 30Hz.
    I already own a Canon SD850IS, which is a great little point and shoot
    (but not remote options :(

    Suggestions?

    I guess I could cobble together something like these, but I don't like
    the idea of a manual cable release pushing on both shutter buttons:

  2. This Flickr group has lots of photographs of working stereo camera
    rigs, and from there you should be able to find discussions about
    suitable cameras and how to modify them. My impression is that
    although few P&S can be operated in that way out of the box, there are
    quite a few which can easily be adapted.
