Customer Reviews

Nice remote and works great with my e-420.
Scott Reilly
This is great for taking those family photos since you don't have to run to beat the timer on your camera.
Amazon Customer
I am trying to save a bit of money each week to get a more expensive yet reliable shutter remote.

Some reviewers have said that only the "S" button works to fire the shutter. Actually all the buttons work on my E-520. All the other buttons work in the playback mode. The + and - buttons advance the frames while the W and T buttons scroll through the other playback views and the +/- buttons also work once the W/T buttons have been pressed. If you play with this you will see what I mean. So all in all this is a fully functional remote for my camera and well worth the money.

You only use it for night shots (keep the hand away from the camera body) or those family shots.

Great little gadget to have in the camera bag. EXCELLENT PRICE.

For the price, you cannot beat this remote control. It does what it is supposed to do, and it does it fairly well. It is small, light, and can easily be hidden in the hand (you probably won't want to see the RC in any of your shots). I tested it to about 25 feet (its specified limit), and it sent the signal to the camera just fine. Olympus E-520 has a 1 and 2 sec. delay for the remote, and so you don't get an instantaneous shutter release, but the 1 sec. is fine with me, and it is better than the self-timer mode. I believe you will be glad you got this nice little tool.

I bought this so I'd never have to deal with the selftimer (and the confusion it creates) again. On my E-500, it works with a 0sec and 2sec delay (preferred, so you have a little time to compose yourself/the group). It will search for autofocus prior to firing if that is how your camera is set, but I prefer to focus myself to ensure that it's correctly done, and then use the remote with the camera on MF. I've only really tested the range of this thing once, and I got it to work successfully from as far as probably 30 feet- pretty good if you ask me. This thing does what it's supposed to, and with it's small profile I'd say it's a great price for something that you'll be taking everywhere.

Easy to use, and works like a charm. Very good price. I haven't tested how far away I can use it, but so far, so good.

This remote is much cheaper than the one that Olympus sells, but does pretty much the same things. I use an E-500 dSLR, and have been pleased with this remote the couple of times that I have used it. Read your camera's user manual to figure out how to get it to work with the camera - it took me a while to figure that out. Once my difficulties were straightened out though, I was able to use the remote just fine.

I bought this in December 2010 and am very happy with the purchase. The remote control was purchase as a replacement for the original remote control (Olympus RM-1) that failed. The RC-6 remote control works with both my Olympus E-500 DSLR and my Olympus C-770. It is not as compact as the old control and works for up to about 15' or so, but still gets the job done and it beats jittery images.
