question

Does this cable ensure the camera remains weather sealed? The photo of it doesn't show the connector front on.
Asked by: D
It doesnt appear to me that it maintains the weatherproofing. Its just a typical single-pin connection, with no special sealing. To be fair, I certainly have not tested it by shooting in the rain, so I cant say positively that its not weatherproof, but thats how it appears to me.

question

Just to be sure...does this remote use the same halfway press to focus, then full press to release the shutter? The question is somewhat irrelevant since my anticipated application will be for Macro with manual focus, but, hey, anything to fill in that lack of details given by Olympus on its products is a gift to us all.

question

Is there another remote that will work with the OM-D Mark II?
Asked by: Gene M.
My old Vivitar wireless shutter release (VIV-RC-200) has the same 2.5mm mini stereo jack as Olympus RM-CB2 cable release and triggers the shutter on EM-1 MkII just fine.As of June 13, 2017 Olympus RM-CB2 is unavailable even on Olympus' website. Too bad since the USB connector of older Olympus RM-UC1 release doesn't fit the EM-1 MkII.
