    I don't believe you will find any headphones that will activate the shutter. Why would you need to use the volume switch on your HP to activate the camera if you're holding the camera in your hand to take a picture?

    There are times I go to picnic with my family, and I wished that I can put the iPhone a little far away so that we can take some groups photos maybe 5-6 person, so if the Bluetooth headset can trigger the shutter(something like wireless shutter), it will be great.

    The problem with the Belkin remote is it only works with it's own app, and not the built in camera app, and their app is pretty lousy.

    Anyone have luck with any other bluetooth headsets?

    I dont think you'd be able to find a product that does that. But I think a quick easy solution you can try, if your phone is already jailbroken, is to set an action with Activator.

    I saw this on a youtube video last night, and then found a site selling it for $79. This is MUCH better, and a great find. Thanks!

    Edit: I just ordered one from this site, and I also found a 10% off coupon code that worked, if anyone else is interested. The code is 10offall

    Wow, my Satechi arrived today. I ordered on the 30th, and it arrived at my door in 3 days. Incredibly fast shipping.

    The remote is great, and works as a promised. It's small, connect's via bluetooth, and the remote camera shutter works with the Apple Camera App as well as Camera+.

    The other features, using it as a media controller is also very good. You can control the iPhones volume, play/pause, skip tracks, bring up the keyboard, mute sound, go to the search screen... Things like the keyboard and search screen seems impractical to me, but the media controller is great. For $40, it's worth it to me just for the shutter release.
