Is it available - olympus or non-OEM? What are folks using?
I bought one of these, works fine: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110439685067
Thanks Ray - will check it out. Knowing it is equivalent to the RM-UC1 puts me in the ballpark.
Remote release for E-P2 ?
I'd like to experiment with remote shutter release with my E-P2 (wired is fine) BUT I'm not at all keen to pay the absurd premium price for an Olympus brand remote (the RM-UC1 is around 50GBP in the UK, which is where I am)
Anyone had any success with eBay clones? I took a chance and bought one for a tenner but the USB wouldn't even fit the camera ... but I bet there are some out there which do work OK.
Any recommendations ?
(I've seen the thread about making ones own, but I won't be doing that ...)
Take a look at this thread: https://www.mu-43.com/f67/wired-remote-e-p2-1808/ and see if it helps.:smile: If it sounds interesting to you, I'd suggest you ask your questions on that thread where Ray posted his link.
thanks for that BBW ... unfortunately that link is for ebay australia ... I was hoping I might get some responses from the UK
I'm after the same thing in the UK --- https://www.mu-43.com/f67/remote-release-e-p2-2773/#post26635
pdh, I've just merged the two threads together in hopes that others will post here about where they purchased their remotes, wired or not.
I bought one off ebay too, it was a cheap-ish one with a time laps and timer functionality.
Timer Remote Shutter Release OLYMPUS E-450 E-510 RM-UC1 on eBay.ca (item 140405441001 end time 05-Jun-10 01:51:07 EDT)
It 90% worked. It only malfunctioned when I had continuous shooting on or when it was unable to obtain focus in auto focus mode.
I ended up fixing it though by taking it apart and unsoldering one wire and resoldering it in another place... it works fine now - except I don't get half-press but at least it doesn't freeze/lock the camera or shoot continuously until I unplug it
Just click the UK link: eBay Stores - LinkDelight Photography NA Shop, New Arrival 1.25X-2.5X Angle Finder items on eBay.com and you're in the UK store.
I can't figure out why some do not ship internationally, their loss, as you can always find substitutes on eBay who do and usually at better prices:

Even wireless if you want:

I got one of these
Wireless Remote Control for E-P1 et al
and it works well with just one caveat.
You need remember to remove the receiver battery after use otherwise you may wind up with a prematurely flat battery as the unit switches on too easily.
hmm looks like cheapies always have some issue or other ... might have to give up on this for a while (though that one linked to by PeterB666 is pretty whizzy - timelapse!)
I've got this... not so cheap, but it works fine.
