OK, but for the price I paid . . .

. . .I'd expect a better executed product. You do the 1/2 push, just like a regular shutter release, to focus and set exposure. But trying to hold the 1/2 push while recomposing the shot can be difficult in shooting situations like macro shots close to the ground. These situations (and others you can imagine) are the reason you're buying this item. And what happens is, you end up either pressing or releasing the 1/2 press before you intend to, and have to start all over. Since this is all sof...

Since this is all software driven, they could have done something like: one press to focus and meter, a second press to take the shot. So, is it useful, yes. Is it adequate, yes. Is it great, no.

Quality product that works as advertised

By

from Houston  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Like all OEM products, it is expensive BUT it is dependable and will last a long time based on my previous experience with this product. Gave it 4 stars rather than five becuase of it's cost. otherwise it is a 5 star product.

Does what it is supposed to

By

from Grand Rapids  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I find the feel of the pushbutton to be mushy. It is difficult to feel where the first stage ends and the second begins. It is therefore easy to accidently take pictures.

E-510 Remote Cable Release

By

from Bellingham WA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Works great, uses the USB port so its best to us the provided velcro strap to secure it to the tripod or camera.

Easy to use, very convenient

By

from DeBary, FL  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Plugs into the usb connection, has a good length of cable, would be nice if could get a remote that was wireless, but this is great to stop any shake while in macro.

Great option for tripod shooting

By

from Falls Church, VA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Use anytime to eliminate camera vibration when shooting landscapes, macro, portraits and even HDR images — especially using a tripod to remove camera shakes during long exposures or capturing multiple images. Feels very solid in your hand, a natural fit. I keep mine in my camera bag for whenever and whatever shots I want...

Just what I was looking for.

By

from Wallingford, CT  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I have been using the camera's timer and a tripod to prevent the camera from moving when taking closeup and bracketed shots for HDRI. Even using a tripod the camera can move slightly when the shutter button is pressed. Using the cable release takes care of the problem.

vicki w  will this work with the Olympus E-510 digital camera? thanks, vicki
DONALD R  No sure. I used it on my E-30 so I'd guess that it would. Go to Olympus web site and check on it. That should tell you what camera it fits. DonR
