iPhone volume/shutter button

Use Your iPhone’s Headset to Take Pictures From Afar

iOS 5 brought us the ability to use the “up” volume button on an iPhone to take a picture but I just read in lifehacker that you can use the iPhone’s earbud remote volume control to do the same thing. This will allow the propping up of the iPhone and hands-free tripping of the shutter button, essentially a cable release.

I don’t use those earbuds (can’t fit in my ears) but I think I might start carrying them now.
