The hahnel Giga T Pro II 2.4GHz Wireless Timer Remote for Olympus combines the functions of a wireless remote shutter release and a remote timer into a single very useful accessory operating at 2.4GHz. Using the small, lightweight receiver and transmitter (batteries included) you have access to programmable features such as a self timer, interval timer, long exposure setting, and exposure count--all of which may be used in any combination, making the possibilities nearly limitless. There is no limit to the possible number of exposures, and an exposure as long as 99 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds can be programmed.

The Giga T Pro II has a Transmitter On/Off button to save battery power. It also has two timing loops, one embedded in the other. This allows you to repeat the original timed program as many times as required. You can also use the original program feature to create a timed 10-minute series of astral shots. You can then set this program to repeat at hourly intervals. In addition, you can set up a basic program which allows you to set up a timed shooting sequence, defining the delay, number of shots, interval shots and so on.

This is a necessary addition to your kit bag for time-lapse or other long exposure photography, including astral photography, wildlife photography and studio photography.

The Giga T Pro II is not compatible with the Giga T Pro.

      Comments about hahnel Giga T Pro II 2.4GHz Wireless Timer Remote for Olympus Cameras:

      I use this timer on my Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Pen E-P2. Works as advertised. The manual is brief, and they seem to assume that you've had experience with interval shooting, or the device is so simple that it doesn't need a more detailed manual. I wish they had provided more in-depth instructions.

      The method of programming may not fit all needs. It works from two time-based series. The first is simply how many shots in a series spaced by a certain amount of time, and the second is the gap between those basic series. For example, you can program it to hold the shutter open for 5 second exposure, take up to 99 shots, and pause 10 seconds in between each shot (that would be the first series). Then you can program it to repeat the first series up to 99 times, with XX time between the last shot and the first shot of the next series. So 99 maximum for the first series x 99 repeats = 9801 maximum shots you will ever program this device to take.

      A way to know remaining battery life would be nice. Both the on-camera receiver and the transmitter depend on replaceable, off the shelf batteries.

      I used mine for the first time to create a sunset time lapse video well into darkness. The LCD panels on both the receiver and the transmitter have lighted panels, but you have to press a button to activate, and it only stays on for a few seconds. Not a problem, especially for the transmitter, but the receiver button must be held down for approximately 2 seconds to activate the light (in contrast, the transmitter is instantaneous). The buttons are stiff, so if you have a short interval between exposures, there's a chance you could introduce vibration into one of your shots if you need to light the receiver panel while shooting.

      The units are plastic, and not weather sealed. The receiver mounts solidly in the hot shoe, but the screw lock is plastic so don't over tighten.

      The unit also came with M4/3 Panasonic cables, so a bit of a waste. I won't ever use them, but I'm also a packrat so won't throw them away either.

      Overall, very pleased with the product. Once you figure out the menu system, it's simple enough. I appreciate the wireless design (they could have made it wired). Probably would be more difficult in cold weather if you had to press buttons with gloves.

        Although I haven't had an opportunity to use it yet - only have had it for about a week - but did "hook" it up to "play" with and it does everything it says it will. Anxious to use it in "real time". Have already recommended it to a friend who has the same Olympus camera. Pretty straight forward as to use - "user friendly".

          Might give 5 stars but have only had it for a couple of weeks. Used with my Oly EM5 for wireless remote shots and timelapse of the night sky while catching some of the Perseid meteor shower.

          I have another older Hahnel remote for my Nikon and it has proved itself reliable for a couple of years.

              Works great, but the cords don't always fully seat first time into their sockets.
