I don't see why you don't read your manual. This camera has remote. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Sony/sony_dsch20.asp You don't want to open the camera, not a good idea. Most of these kinds of cameras have remote control built in and can use a controller from some distance. Most use a similar kind of control as the remotes for TV, Vcrs, and so on. http://www.dcviews.com/_sony/h20.htm
Place your camera on a tripod and prepare your scene.
While in a shooting mode, press the timer button (the bottom button in the circle set on of the back of the camera). Press it repeatedly. It will cycle through self-timer and remote-control. On the screen, a Timer will appear for the self-timer and a little Remote with a lightning bolt will appear for the remote-control. Stop pressing the button when the timer appears, pause for 3 seconds to allow the camera to confirm the setting the icon will disappear.
These instructions are described on Pg 55 of the manual, but I will repeat them in simplified form in case you don't have the manual.
Once the timer setting is set, press the shutter-release button fully. If you press it half-way it will focus and lock the exposure, then press it fully.
The self timer/remote control lamp will light for 10 seconds. Get in position in the scene, after the 10 seconds the light will begin blinking. After 2 more seconds, the picture is taken.
To cancel the timer mode, press the Timer button again; however the timer mode is automatically canceled after one shot.
It is important in all timer scene shots with cameras, don't stand directly in front of the camera because this will then focus on you instead of the scene.
Yes... I don't remember the code I think is HC-VC1 or something like that, go to http://bhphotovideo.com and look for F828 accesories. It is around 35 USD and it is, after the flash, the best gadget for the camera I had found.
