Ask LH: What Is The Best Camera For Selfies?

Dear Lifehacker, I'm interested in getting a camera that has a remote control to take self-portraits. What do you recommend?

Dear Lifehacker, I work in a typical 9-to-five office job. I can tell my posture isn't ideal and I catch myself slouching all the time.
