Vello RS-O3II overview

  • 1Description

Whether you are shooting in the studio or outdoors, the Vello RS-O3II Wired Remote Switch provides photographers using select Olympus cameras with a simple way to control exposures and an easy-to-use tool to create more "keepers". The device is larger and more comfortable to use than many other remote devices, with a thick, sturdy cord.

The RS-O3II is compatible with autofocusing, continuous shooting or single image capture, and long exposures. It will autofocus on a half press of the button and trigger the shutter with a full press. Also, users can press the button and slide it forward to lock it for long exposures. Since you can trigger exposures without touching the camera, you will capture sharp, blur-free images. Additionally, the unit does not require batteries as it draws its power from the camera, making it an extremely useful tool to keep in your studio or gear bag.

    Vello RS-O3II reviews

    RS-O3II Wired Remote Switch for Select Olympus Cameras is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality IMO Yes, it functions as it should and I did fine with it on my E-M1. But, I also have a Pen F, and when I tried to disconnect the cable from the Pen F, the connector separated from the cable just as another reviewer reported, though I don't know the camera he had been using. Perhaps the Pen F tolerances were partly to blame, but the connector should not have come apart. Oh, wait a minute. The price is very low. Ya' gets what ya' pays fer. I'll buy the(perhaps) overpriced Olympus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I ever expected I was originally looking for a cheaper remote switch for my OMD EM5ii. I have several thousand 35mm slides that I need to digitize, using the 60mm Olympus macro lens. I was using the Olympus wi-fi remote control from my I-pad, which worked fine to eliminate camera shake, but was a bit too slow for me. The RS-O3II remote eliminates all camera shake and makes the process much faster, allowing me to go into full production mode. I have completed well over 1,000 slides and it shows no sign of wearing out. I continue to use the Olympus wi-fi remote control for macro because I like the on screen viewing and control, but I can see times where I will use the RS-O3II.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Connector Should have known there would be a problem when it did not easily plug into the camera. Release worked fine, but when disconnecting it, the connector came apart and I had to resort to pliers to get the metal part of the connector out of the camera port.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Remote! Works great with Oly M5 Mk II. Great alternative to expensive Olympus version!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works on my OMD EM5 II Works as it should...saved $$$ over OEM
    Date published: 2017-07-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Asimple device This is a straight forward device, it allows one to focus and take pictures while not touching the camera. This prevents vibrations with long exposures, and allows easy photographing while lookin dirrectly at the subject, rather than through the viewer. This is sililar to the old portrait hotographers, that exposed with a rebber bulb in their hand while they engaged the subject.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I reccomend it Works as described with my OMD EM-1. I gave it four stars (instead of five, because it's too easy to slide the trigger into its locked position, quite often unintentionally. In critical situation it may cost you a shot, before you find out why it did not trigger the exposure at your command. But I have learned how to bias my thumb to avoid this mishap from happening.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value, does the job. This is a nice simple remote for my OMD EM5. Versus the brand name remotes it is a great deal and like all the other Vello products I have purchased, it does the job just fine. It gets 4 stars, not 5 only because it is wired which is a bit of a drawback vs wireless (but way less expensive)
