    Is it a usual occurrence for the remote cable fall out of it's receptacle on the PL 3? This has happened to me several times, so much so, that I was thinking about buying a hot shoe mounted release, until I realized, there is no hot shoe.

    Thank you

    In my experience (E-P1,2,3), the wired release was quite tight fitting and never came out - rather, it took some effort to push it into the socket deep enough to work.

    Is yours working when in the socket? If so, you might try the following method to increase the size of the plug: add a thin layer of glue, let it dry completely. THEN, try the plug. This will add a small layer to the plug that should tighten the fit.

    Good luck!
