    Anyone have any experience with a good remote cable release for the E-P2?

    I am finding that in spite of IBIS, I am still getting camera shake on my longer lenses. A remote release would help.

    I have just bought a cable release that is also an intervalometer. It seems well made and of course does normal shutter with double press and lock for bulb exposures. It does not have an on-off switch though.

    Even the Canon TC-80N3 timer remote for their SLRs does not have an off switch. These things use so little power when idling that it doesn't matter. The battery will last for years, unless you continually activate the backlight.

    Just last week I bought an intervalometer remote for my G1 (still waiting for delivery from HK). Doing HDR bracketing manually was getting to be too much of a pain (I will have to sort out the timing to get all the bracketed shots in one go, but that should be manageable).

    Thanks guys......I just ordered the shutter release that Ray pointed to.

    Bill......I am interested in how your intervalometer works out...if it stands up to the stress test.
