A big improvement over a self timer

 

This remote works with many other Olympus models, too. I use it with a C750 and an E500 SLR. It totally eliminates camera wobble when used with a tripod because you don't have to touch the camera. It's far better than a timer if you want to be ......

Excellent for group shots when you want in the photo. Shoot when everyone is ready, not 10 sec later. Great for use with a tripod

Remote for olympus cameras

 

I use this remote for Olympus E500 dSLR. It works as it is supposed to do. I mainly use this for controling the shutter for family portrait. So, it works well as long as I use this remote from the front of the camera. Some people complain that the...

It controls a shutter of Olympus E500 remotely

Too expensive

Consumer review by:

Useful but too expensive

 

I got this from amazon.com where the lowest price I could find. It still costs me more than 25 bucks. When I got it, I could not wait to use on my new olympus E500 camera. It works. I am not too much excited but just felt I got something I can use to...

Remote just functions as a remote control

Price is too high

Consumer review by:

does its job

 

This tiny remote control is way overpriced at $30. The W and T and - and + buttons do not work with my Evolt 300. I paid $30 for just a remote shutter release (just to stablize my picture). Many digital cameras have a remote control in the original...

Easy to use

way overpriced. cannot control from behind

Does a Job, Could Take on More

 

I purchased the RM-1 to act as a remote shutter trigger for the E-Volt E-500 DSLR when doing studio shots with long shutter times. I did not want camera shake to blur the photo, and wanted a remote way of triggering the shutter. It works. ...

Works with the E-Volt E-500 DSLR

Only triggers the shutt on E-Volt E-500 Too Tight a Beam

Consumer review by:

good remote

 

The remote does what it's supposed to do. I am using this with an Olympus E-300, so the zoom won't work because the zoom is mechanic on E-300. You will only be able to fire shots from the remote. The range is pretty good for at least 20ft with about 60...

well made, you can zoom in/out as well as take shots
