I am probably going to pick up one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Pixel-RW-221-UC1-Wireless-OLYMPUS/dp/B004DO19M2#

But I was wondering what other options are out there. I don't have an Eye-Fi card, but have been considering getting one. Is there any way to trigger the shutter via wi-fi?

Any other options worth considering? Looking for a relatively cheap option, as I only really need it for my birding photos.

Thanks!
Trevor

I have that remote trigger and I can say that it's never failed me. Great product for the price!

I use the Hähnel Combi TF. It works and it doubles as a remote flash trigger, probably without TTL and all that stuff, at least I haven't tried that. I have a tendency to drain the batteries of the remote, though, possibly because the shutter button easily gets squeezed when it's sitting in its bag. Putting the remote in a hard plastic box seems to have mitigated this, though.

I use the same one mentioned in the first post with my EM1. It's a great wireless remote. I have a review on YouTube where I talk about functionality. It might not work exactly like you think it would for some of the other shooting modes. I'll post the video in a bit.
