      I own a canon 5D Mll etc and have been shooting for several decades so I have a few experienced opinions. Tho I don't claim to know it all i do work a camera thoroughly.
      Sometimes shooting over 1500 shots a day on assignments. Even the self imposed variety. I love to photograph.
      Recently I have been hunting for a smaller camera to use on the street and in other candid venues that would not attract the 'oh he's a poor' attitude from subjects in crowds and such.
      After trying most of the other 4-3 mirror less this
      OMD EM5 I am truly delighted and pleased. It is lighting g fast focusing and created a true to life tonal rendition of the scenes night or day. It's easy to use the buttons a d the articulate vu screen is a big plus. The range of lenses is great too. I recomend this to anyone pro or beginner.

      Simple, functional, affordable

      I purchased the rs-o1II to trigger long time exposures, and it works well for that. It's small, simple and works fine.

        This device is well made and performs exactly as specified. I generally buy Olympus accessories but their price for this simple switch is way over the top. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

          I had previously bought another remote in @ from China. The remote didn't work and I went online and read bad reviews on similar defective remotes for the olympus omd.I was afraid I was going to go thru the same experience again.The remote was shipped very quickly and I've using it over and over and it is PERFECT! From now on I'm checking B&H first and staying away from @.

                  For the amount paid, this is a rather well built wired remote control. I don't normally purchase non-camera brand accessiories, but the price difference between this and the Olympus remote was just too much to justify. It does exactly what its intended to do.

                      Works well with the EM-1; no problems with the connection falling out of the camera as some users have reported with other remotes. This is a great accessory when you want to use the EM-1 in Live Bulb or Live Time mode.

                              Remote for E-PL2. Works just like it is supposed too. Make sure you push the button completely before engaging the lock for bulb exposure. Much cheaper than the Olympus brand. Save money!!

                                While I wish the cord was longer for self portraits using a tripod, it worked great hand holding the camera for some self done headshots.

                                When I emailed the manufacturer, they pointed out a wireless remote, the Vello - FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release for Nikon and Olympus Kit for my Olympus OMD that I'm getting ready to purchase.

                                I'll still use this one even when I have the cordless since its so convenient.

                                      I purchased the rs-o1II to trigger long time exposures, and it works well for that. It's small, simple and works fine.

                                        The price is right on this remote, and it plugs in and works with no problems. The construction is lightweight (don't step on it!), so I'm not sure how it would stand up to abuse, but it works like it should.

                                          Connector fits snuggly into my OM-D. Wire is heavy enough that it shouldn't easily break like a Promaster version I tried. Release also works well with good prefocus feel.

                                            I own a canon 5D Mll etc and have been shooting for several decades so I have a few experienced opinions. Tho I don't claim to know it all i do work a camera thoroughly.
                                            Sometimes shooting over 1500 shots a day on assignments. Even the self imposed variety. I love to photograph.
                                            Recently I have been hunting for a smaller camera to use on the street and in other candid venues that would not attract the 'oh he's a poor' attitude from subjects in crowds and such.
                                            After trying most of the other 4-3 mirror less this
                                            OMD EM5 I am truly delighted and pleased. It is lighting g fast focusing and created a true to life tonal rendition of the scenes night or day. It's easy to use the buttons a d the articulate vu screen is a big plus. The range of lenses is great too. I recomend this to anyone pro or beginner.

                                              Comments about Vello RS-O1II Wired Remote Switch for Select Olympus Cameras:

                                              I do a lot of long exposure night photography and looked into many of the options available for the Olympus OMD-EM5. Unfortunately there are only two styles of remotes available: wired (such as this) or one that connects to the hot shoe. This is because the OMD does not have a sensor to pick up a wireless remote. I did not want to take up the hot shoe, so I went the wired option.
                                              This remote is priced very attractively, and works very well. It seems to be build well, has about a 3 foot reach, and fits into the camera snuggly. Definitely worth the price and will get a lot of use.
