Most Liked Positive Review


Works well

Works well and eliminates camera shake. Review says it all. Works as described. Great for bulb view and when taking portraits.


Most Liked Negative Review


Works, but its a little tricky.

I got this to take photos where I would be in the shot. The downside to this remote is you have to point the remote at the front of the camera to use it. This works okay if you are taking photos of yourself (if you can do it at an angle where you dont see yourself holding it). I was thinking of using this in the studio for macro shots so I didnt shake the camera but I would have to hold it over the top of the camera and point it at the sensor.

Much better than I thought


from LA East  -  Pro Photographer

This is one of those things I did not think i really needed, until i used, now can live without it. Takes the place of my expensive RF transmitter for all but extreme long distance shooting. Nice and small and works perfectly each time


Much better than after market


from Brisbane Australia  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Excellent IR remote that works signifcantly better than an after market version I purchased prior. Better range, reliable use and easy to understand function buttons


Haven't used it must, but I will at the


from Ohio  -  Photo Enthusiast

I will also try it during close-up shots to reduce vibration.


Works Great!


from Poplar Bluff, MO  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is my second remote. Bought first one used on and it didn't last long. Works great where long exposures are needed or just want to be included in group photos.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

STEVEN B  Does this work with the om-d? Nothing else required?
GARY B  I have been using it with my olympus E-620, it does everything it's supposed to do, it was nice taking pictures remote while standing in the groupe. be sure the camera is set for remote
Shopper  does this work for the sp 500uz?
GERRY G  The RM-1 only works with select Olympus Cameras which are mostly the SLR-DSLR cameras (E-500 etc.,) . The RM-1 is not listed as an accessory for the SP-500UZ so I would wager that this unit will not work with that camera model
Shopper  What battery does this RM-1 use?
GUY B  It uses a lithium battery. CR 2025. 3V.
