Just spoken to Oly UK - bad news. Not only is the E-PL1 not remote compatible, it NEVER WILL BE compatible. This isn’t just a firmware issue - in their wisdom, Olympus made the E-PL1 hardware non remote compatible !!! Who'd have thought it was that different to the E-P1 and E-P2? So unless/until they introduce timed release with bracketing instead of one or the other, HDRs are going to have to be handheld or locked down on the tripod… which blows away any chance of long exposure HDR shots and any practical use of bulb setting Edited to add.... don't get me wrong, I still love my E-PL1 - but I was as surprised as the Tech support guy was when he found out. Just seems to be a bit of a big oversight on Oly's part to me.
