      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.

        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.

                          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.

                                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.

                                I'm really happy about this remote, it's small-ish, light weight, and from what I can tell, doesn't require batteries. That last part is the biggest plus.

                                Simple remote. The hold switch is a slider that wraps around the release button. If you not careful you will engage the hold function without knowing it.

                                  Not much to say its a remote shutter switch. used it on my Olympus E-600 and it works like it is supposed to. Cheaper than the Olympus brand but it works well. Will get a lot of use when camera is on tripod.

                                    This is everything you could expect in a basic wired remote, for much less than the price of the Olympus-branded version. Works perfectly, no frills and no issues. I give it 4 stars instead of all 5 only because the USB connector is a bit tight, and you really have to push it into the camera's port to make it connect. But that's minor.

                                      Works just fine, One wonders how Olympus can charge many times more for pretty much the same item. B&H could not have been more helpful.

                                        I had always used the wireless remote but that made it difficult as i had to position it in front of the camera, this makes life much simpler. Great product would recommend it for Oly cameras.
