Can someone please clarify which cable release I need for the e-m5 ii? Is it the rm-uc1?
Yep. Page 143 of the manual.
Thanks. Don't have the manual yet. Just ordered the camera
Grab the PDF... unlike paper, it's searchable.
1)Mobile phone app.
2) external trigger like neweer, or smth. As cheap.
3) 2s timer.
I've had great success using the app for those times when I want a remote release. Very cheap and you almost always have your mobile with you.
I was looking for one awhile back, but ended up using the "OI Share" app that works great and for much more than just releasing the shutter.
I'm looking more for long exposure for fireworks etc
The app has live bulb and live comp too.
I have a generic shutter release with built in timer/intervalometer that I used with my E-P1. Annoyingly it doesn't work on my E-M5. I need to try it on my E-PM1 before I blame the release; I suspect it just doesn't interface properly with the newer models.
Its exactly like this but a different brand (wouldn't be surprised if they all come out of the same factory).
I may need to bite the bullet and just get another one that is more modern.
I'd prefer not to use a smart phone - 2xAA batteries and a remote-shutter will run for years without messing around with a phone & app.
