Could someone tell me if the EM1 and EM5 uses the same cable release?
Is there any chance that the cable release for the Olympus E series DSLRs would work with the EM1 or EM5?
Beats me. I've never owned an Olympus until now. Had always been a Nikon (SLR) user.
It appears so. I use these:
The wireless trigger and receiver are universal, it accepts modular cables to trigger just about any camera system.
EM1 and EM5 have the same cabe release.
No idea about one for the E series working on either camera.
Excellent. Thanks for the help!
All Olympus digital cameras with interchangeable lenses and the better ones with fixed lenses use the same connector.
Yes they do, as most other Olympus camera models also do.
Yes, same one except E-1 & E-3.
I bought this from amazon 2 years ago, it works very well.
E-M1, E-M5, E-5 and the modern m43 use the RM-UC1 release
Evolt E-1, E3 and the rest it is RM-CB1. They are both not interchangeable; different pins.
That sounds confusing. Let's rewrite this a little clearer (& more accurately).
Evolt E-1, E3 use RM-CB1 & the rest of the E series (E400, 500, 30 & 600 & all PENs & OM-Ds, plus Stylus 1) cameras use the RM-UC1 release.
FYI. the EPL1 is the only PEN that does not have the remote shutter release wired into the USB port.
Also, the E300 doesn't take the same USB connector as the PEN's and EM series.
Rats! I can't be right all the time!
I did check on the E300 (that has a Mini USB connector) & noticed there was no wired remote available, but the manuals aren't too helpful as I couldn't find the info in the Stylus 1 manual on the cable, but it does function.
