Consumer review by:

A useful addition to the E-1 camera

 

This cable release works on the Olympus E-1 camera and serves to trigger the shutter, as well as being the control for shooting long exposure "bulb" shots. It is well constructed, but I'm of the opinion it should sell for about half of what Olympus...

Does exactly what it is supposed to do.

None, except the price.

Product Specifications

If you've spent years using a mechanical cable release on your 35mm or medium format camera, using the RM-CB1 feels like home territory. In fact, it's much nicer than any mechanical release. The release button works just like the shutter release on the body of the camera. The optional Power Grip, with shutter release, suits for long photo shooting sessions outdoors or on location where no power supply is available. For remote operation, an optional shutter release cable is available. As with the normal release button, the metering functions (such as AF and exposure metering) are activated once the cable release is half pressed.
