Product Description

This Multi-Function Timer remote control remote provides a simple trigger function for camera shutter release and will work with Panasonic DMW-RS1 cameras.

This high quality timer remote offers an operating range of up to 80m (~260ft) and a multitude of shooting methods: single shooting, continuous shooting within one sec, [BULB ] shooting, user-defined time-delay and timing plan.
The timer can be used in two ways:
1. It can be used as a wireless remote control;
2. It can be connected to the camera via the included cable to act as a cabled shutter release control.

It can be programmed to function as an intervalometer to create time lapse movies. Features a 1.6' cord when stretched, self-timer, interval timer, long-exposure timer, and exposure-count settings. The timer can be set anywhere from 1 sec. to 99 hrs., 59 min., 59 sec. in one-second increments and can take from 1 to 9999 shots or be set to unlimited shooting.

The bigger problem is with timelapse shots.

I've gotten good and consistent shutter trips from it so far - more reliable than other 3rd party wireless remotes I've used in the past.

I can confirm this works with the Panasonic GF1.

AFAIK this is the only wireless + intervalometer combo on the market right now.

Mine is labeled as the "Pixel" brand, model TW-282. I'm using it on a Panasonic GH1.

I rate it 3.5 stars...rounding down to 3 for Amazon.

Pros:
-- Receiver is compact and should run for a very long time on a lithium CR2.
-- Receiver has a small flashing green LED to remind you it is on.
-- Handheld remote is nicely laid out and easy to use.
-- Both receiver and remote have optional backlight for use in dim conditions.
-- Automatic locking "Bulb" mode.
-- Intervalometer lets you control both interval length between shots, and exposure length of the shots.
-- Range seems fine. Tested across the house, 40-50 feet with several walls, no problems.
-- Cord is fairly short, mostly coiled. It could be 4"-5" shorter for use with the GH1, but it's OK as is.

Cons:
-- Cannot use the handheld unit by itself as a wired remote. Personally, I don't care since I have a simpler/smaller remote with a long cord. But the pictures above imply that it would work. The remote DOES have a jack for the wire, but it does not work.
-- The handheld unit needs a hard POWER SWITCH. This is the biggest problem IMO. Having it come on in a camera bag is just a minor concern. It automatically turns off after 1 minute. The bigger problem is with timelapse shots. Here's what happens:

When you press the button to run a timelapse program, the handheld sends that program to the receiver, which then runs all by itself. That's all fine and good, as it should be.

But...the handheld also starts counting down the timelapse program for you. You can't shut it off to save batteries, because it has no off switch.

I recently acquired a Panasonic GF1. As another reviewer stated, this is still the only wireless trigger/timer available. I can confirm this works with the Panasonic GF1. Another reviewer said they could not get it to work. I just plugged it in and it was good to go. Most likely the batteries were dead or you received the wrong connector cord (RS1 is the correct cord for Panasonic cameras and it should say this on the box). The cord can be plugged into the hot-shoe receiver or directly into the remote transmitter (which another reviewer said was not possible). There is a small circular piece of plastic on the front of the remote that covers the connection port. I gently pried the remote open with a flat head screw driver and removed this small piece. The remote snaps right back together. As expected, but never explicitly stated, the shutter button on the remote works like the camera shutter. A half press for focus and a full press to actuate the shutter. Also, the receiver has a mount on the bottom of it like a camera, so you can screw mount this somewhere else if your camera's hot-shoe is occupied by a flash or EVF/OVF. The unit will work with many other cameras, all you need is the proper connection cord. They can be bought individually. While the unit meets my full expectations, it is light and feels cheaply made. With reasonable care however it should last. And of course I agree with everyone else, an on/off switch would have been nice.

I bought this because it was only a few dollars more than the Panasonic wired remote. I haven't tried any of the timer functions but it does appear to work well as a wireless remote release. I've gotten good and consistent shutter trips from it so far - more reliable than other 3rd party wireless remotes I've used in the past. The manual is sadly uninformative and it took a while to figure out how to set the channel on the receiver so I could do anything (press and hold both buttons - then use left or right button to go channel up or down). I like that the reciever fits into the hotshoe and isn't just left dangling (unless you need to use the flash too). It would be nice if both the receiver and transmitter had a slide switch to shut off/turn on power. I can see where either piece could be turned on in the camera bag while not being used and would result in dead batteries when you did need them. I've been removing the batts just in case.

This may not be a surprise to many but I suspect more than one will find this thread and find it useful. Particularly Nikon users as they are used to being served well in time-lapse functionality. But for now this is the best super-zoom by far in my opinion.

I am happy to report that the following unit works just fine with the recently released DMC-FZ150 as a wireless shutter and intervalometer solution. Also if you remove the small rubber grommet from the top of the remote you can plug the cable into it, and your camera on the other, for a wired intervalometer (timer) remote configuration.

The wireless has been reported to have excellent range, and went through a few apartments worth of wall this evening just fine.

The vendor got it to me in 6 days.

You will not be able to extend the shutter past its already stated 15 seconds. But full manual, A, P, S, Auto, Bracketing all work fine. Changing camera settings between exposures, does not effect the timer settings.

You can program a delay before starting , hours, minutes, seconds etc. 1-99 exposures or set it to limitless exposures. Also a 1 second continuous exposure always available with this model as long as you have not programmed something longer in camera. There is a bulb setting I didn't mess with. But the meat and potatoes of the gizmo works just fine. The manual is pretty badly translated but gets the job done.

I'm glad I popped for the $75.00 for the wireless version instead of the $50.00 version as it is more pleasurable to use. And has a reported 80 meter range, one fella tested at 100 yards.
