5.0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable value...
Given the price of the Oly item, this should be on everyone's wish list (especially as the normal RM1 remote doesn't work if you're behind the camera - a dumb idea). Works perfectly on my E420, and the half-pressure autofocus point is easily detectable by the most hamfisted.

In case anyone is wondering, it doesn't work on the E500 (but I didn't expect it to).

1.0 out of 5 stars Remote Switch Cable Shutter Control Review
Rec'd the switch promptly, within 2 days of ordering. I needed it so I could video & take photos at the same time & it worked fine to start with BUT after 5 shots the switch malfunctioned causing me to miss some important photos. VERY annoyed & will have to purchase a similar device but probably spend more money this time in the hope that it works properly for a longer...

Fantastic remote control. If something works without resorting to the user manual that's a definite plus from me. I simply plugged it in, set the camera for a remote, and it worked. Recommended.

I bought this as I only occassionally need to use a remote release. This one works perfectly on my Olympus E620 and is a fraction of the cost of the manufacturers model. I always look on Amazon to see what solutions or items either they or their associated merchants might be able to offer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steady shots, 10 Oct. 2010

The remote switch is a must for anyone trying to use macro lenses or filter. The camera can be set on a tripod then the eye cup cover put on and with just a slight pressure the camera can focus and then take a perfectly steady shot. Fast service and delivery add's to the value

Does exactly what is says on the tin at a fraction of the cost of the equivalent from Olympus. Does seem to work with live view though. Took some stunning long exposure night Photos on a recent trip to Singapore. Would highly recomend.

Does just what it says on the tin (in Chinese, admittedly, but turn the page and there's an English translation). If you ever use your Olympus E510 on a tripod, you should have this device in your camera bag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Olympus E-410 remote, 24 July 2010
This review is from: Remote Switch Cable Shutter Control with Locking for Olympus SP570,SP560,E400,E410,E420,E510 E520,E620,E-30,EP-1,EP-2 as RM-UC1. (Electronics)
This is the electronic equivalent of the old SLR remote trigger. It works fine, just as described. Good for those long exposures as you can lock the shutter open. Great value, very fast delivery !!

3.0 out of 5 stars No perfect, but not terrible either, 24 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Remote Switch Cable Shutter Control with Locking for Olympus SP570,SP560,E400,E410,E420,E510 E520,E620,E-30,EP-1,EP-2 as RM-UC1. (Electronics)
Simply put: it isnt perfect, but it gets the job done. It does tend to fall from the usb port in my E-P2, but I dont see that as a major problem. Considering the price, which (let be honest) is as low as it gets, I would recomend this item.
