If there is an electronic shutter release socket, either someone makes
a radio trigger which will work with it, or which can be made to work
with it with a socket convertor, or you can browse some of the many
DIY instructional articles about how to use a cheap remote flash radio
trigger the other way round as a remote radio shutter release.

The tailor made devices can be surprisingly expensive. The DIY
versions can be surprisingly cheap.

For an example of an inexpensive general purpose device google "cactus
wireless shutter release".
