However, if your intent is to use this as a remote shutter release from the side or behind the camera, then don't bother with the purchase. It is designed to be used in front of the camera obviously so you can join in the shot with your subject. Great for those vacations where it is you and your significant other (with a tripod) and no one else to take the photo.

Also a good choice if you want to reduce the chance of "blurring" during low light photos such as sunsets and candle light. Again, you need to be in front of the camera (30 degree coverage directly looking at the lens).

This is the second RM-1 remote control that I have. The first one came with my C-2020Z camera and served me well. I used it to take some 2000 pics. In the interim, I also threw in lots of abuse for good measure |-) : I dropped it numerous times, stepped on it, etc.

When it finally conked out, the original battery was still going strong. Battery power consumption had not been an issue.

The remote control is great for taking self-portrait, or for group shots. It's *much* better than using the self-timer: no need to run & get into position after tripping the timer!

The only problem that I experienced was when using it outdoors, its range is somewhat limited. Once when I needed to take a pic of a group of people posing next to their cars (i.e. a pic where the camera needs to be a bit of a way away), I needed to walk up closer to the camera (on a tripod) before the remote control would work.

The RM-1 is very compact and easily storable in the smallest of places. I use it with my E-300 Evolt Digital SLR. With this camera only the large shutter button on the remote is usable. The other 4 buttons for zoom and +/- are not applicable to that particular camera. A bit of a disappointment after getting it, but I probably wouldn't have used them anyway.

I got this very handy accessory item to go with my digital camera. It's compatable and very handy for taking family pictures on holidays where you can be included in the picture.

I know the camera's have self timers, but who wants to run and be breathless to get in the frame in time before the camera fires.

This way you can take more time to compose your picture and it turns out great. I highly recommend this if you plan on taking pictures at any family gathering-or taking informal portraits at home.

While offered as a remote for the Stylus Digital camera, this remote is a match for the Olympus E-500 digital SLR camera. The unit is reliable, works perfectly with the E-series cameras, and works as expected.

I have now had six Olympus cameras: a Stylus Epic 35mm point & shoot, a C-2020-Zoom digital, a C-60 digital, two Stylus 410 digitals, and now a Stylus 800 digital. I have both the RM-1 and the RM-2 (with just the shutter release). Both work with all of the Olympus cameras I've owned. The RM-1 came with the C-2020-Zoom (ca. 1999, bought off eBay) and the RM-2 came with the Stylus 410. The C-60 also came with an RM-2. But for some reason, Olympus has decided to stop including the Remote.

I have had no problems with this remote working in any lighting conditions. The zoom controls worked on the C-2020 and the new Stylus 800. Haven't tried it on the others.

I also own a Pentax Optio S55. The Pentax remote (also called an RM-2 - but a different beast altogether), is very weak in signal strength and cost an extra $30. The Pentax button is very small and hard to press compared to the Olympus.

First check if your camera will work with it. If it does great!!! Get it its great for taking pictures of yourself, or time lapsed photography (puting camera in tripod and you sitting comfortably in a chair), taking pictures without people knowing he he. Also good for bird watching, aim the camera, (manual focus recomended for faster shooting) wait for the bird and picture! It's so small, don't loose it, if you tend to loose small things attach it to the camera with velcro, you wont notice its there.

If you own an Olympus digital camera that can utilize this remote control, but did not come standard with it you should consider buying this accessory. It works great for tripod photography and for controlling the camera while you review your pictures over your television screen with the video cable that came with your camera. The range of the remote control is quite far and it will work even if aimed indirectly at the camera sensor.
