    Almost perfect

    posted by Obazu on 06/18/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Size is very nice, not too small but big enough. Price is excellent, original Olympus remote control is very expensive and this does the same job. Uses one common lithium-cell you can find almost anywhere and they don't cost much these days.
    Cons:
    It has a shiny smooth surface. It looks quite nice but after some use it is full of fingerprints. It would be better if it had ...

    Still working two years after I bought it

    posted by pdsadx on 03/21/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Most importantly this gizmo works. I have been using it for about two years on an occasional basis. The batteries are still good. It works every time and it is so easy to use that I don't have to reach for the instruction manual when I need to use it.
    Cons:
    None.However, a splash of bright colour would make it easier to find in a dark camera bag.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Costs nothing compared to original Olympus remote. The remote is small, fits nicely to pocket or to camera bag. Build quality is good. Looks good in my opinion.

    There are no instructions in the remote which button does what.

    Definetly worth the money

    posted by orivar on 01/10/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    * Works right out of the box (battery even included) * Controls my E-410 like a charm * Works well from most angles (I've yet to test its range) * Retail remote is 25-30$. Do the math.

    Works

    posted by yeero on 10/11/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Slim and small enough to fit in even the smallest camera back. Looks good in my opinion. Good build quality. I've had this item for few days now and run some tests with it. Does work. And the price is amazing, about one tenth of original brand.
    Cons:
    Buttons are not explained in the user manual. However, they are explained in another review here, and with tree buttons it's no...

    Does the job

    posted by irishspark on 08/18/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Works on the new Olympus E520. Almost cheaper to buy it from Deal Extreme than it is to buy a battery! Its small and dosen't take up much space.
    Cons:
    No Instructions, but it isn't that hard to figure out how to use it. When I opened the battery compartment I accidently dropped...
