Consumer review by:

Ridiculous connector, outrageous price

 

Olympus's choice of USB as the connector is an insult to its customers. Canon may charge well over $100 for a remote timer with a dumb connector, but at least that remote IS A TIMER with several modes. Its connector is still a simple three-pole switch...

I can't say there's anything that will make up for such an inept implementation of a simple switch

Inexplicable use of a USB connector for a shutter release. This needless complexity puts stress on the USB terminal and prevents you from fashioning a workaround for Olympus's failure to provide interval timers on its cameras. A $40-50 SWITCH
