People have made cable release brackets that attach to many cameras.

Here is one type that attaches with a strap.

I have seen some that are made from an aluminum bar that is bent into a "U" shape. It attaches to the tripod mount on the bottom of the camera. It curves around one end of the camera and extends over the shutter button. The hole is drilled and threaded just above the shutter button. A standard cable release screws into the hole.

Both the cameras you list are new on the market and I doubt that anyone has tried one of the universal cable releases on either camera.

So only you will be able to determine if it will work on those two cameras.
