    Which release are you talking about? Only the wired releases work with the PENs, in particular the Olympus RM-UC1. The PEN cameras do not have an infrared sensor to use the wireless release like the RM-1.

    I believe E-PL1 is the only Pen model which does not support cable remote

    D'oh! I never even noticed the "E-PL1" part. You are correct, the E-PL1 does not support the wired remote unlike every other PEN camera.

    unless one was created recently, there are no remote releases for the EPL-1. even though there is a bulb setting, and night scene settings, no remote was ever made for this camera. I was originally told it was a firmware thing, but who knows. Oly fixed this in the EPL- 2.
    Somewhere in the past threads I showed how I made one utilizing a remote cable and some other stuff. Try a search for EPL 1 remote release.
