    has anyone seen the alleged new remote that replaces the remote for the pen line? its by RainbowImaging, its electronic, and claims to work with the EPL1...seen on Amazon.com.....67$...any validity?

    that's the one..my concern is that it replaces the RM-UC 1, which didn't work with the EPL-1....did RI get something right that OLY didn't ?

    The E-PL1 does not support the remote release. Rainbow Imaging is incorrect. Our only hope is that Oly enables it in a future firmware upgrade. Though I think with the E-PL2 out that the PL1 will go bye bye.

    I read that there's something hard-wired or mechanical about the EPL1 that means a remote shutter is not possible.

    That's probably true since they obviously made the PL1 as a lower cost alternative to the E-P2
