Olympus RM-CB1 reviews

RM-CB1 Remote Cable Release is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely made product. Works well. I used this release with my E5 in conjunction with the anti-shock feature to lock the mirror up just prior to the shutter firing to avoid any image quality degradation due to either mirror slap or vibrations caused by me pressing the shutter release. The release on the RM-CB1 is very smooth. Just as nice as the release on the E5 itself. Very easy to obtain AF on the half press or go all the way and take the shot. A nice feature is the slot where you can screw on the port cap from the E5 to keep from losing something that seems like it could be very easy to lose! If yo like using your camera off a tripod and want the smoothest release possible with no vibrations, you want this accessory.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldn't Live Without It! About 60% of the photos I make in a given week are shot with a tripod mounted camera. This remote cable release makes tripod operation of my E-300 a breeze. Actually allows more precise release of the shutter than the camera's shutter button as the throw of the switch is sufficient to allow great precesion in actuating the auto focus. I hated to spend so much money for a cable release but now that I've bitten the bullet I can't imagine being without this handy dandy little gadget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really helps us older guys This cable relese works as well as the shutter release on the camera. Excellent feel and control. I shoot on a tripod with long lenses and this release helps me get sharp, in focus images. Missed shots from camera shake are a thing of the past. I suppose I am a little old fashioned, but I do not like to compromise my images by using high iso speeds to raise the shutter speeds to mask camera shake. This device helps me stop it from happening!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like it's meant to Never been disappointed with anything from Olympus, works like it's meant to on my wonderful E3. Only concern I have is the 3 position cable connector could be easily damaged, if you aren't careful with it. A must have addition if you shoot multiple exposured for HDR, or simply need to take those long exposure bulb shots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have! This cable release has worked perfectly over and over again in all kinds of situations and conditions with my E3. I don't go out to shoot without it. Definitely should be in your camera bag.
