I have an Olympus E-520 and want to buy a wireless remote shutter release.

Can anyone recommend some makes and models for me to consider? I'd like to get a really good quality one. From what I've read, radio frequency is better (more reliable / more versatile) than IR.

The makes that I've come across are:
- Olympus (seems very basic, kind of cheap)
- Vivitar (didn't see any reviews)
- Hahnel (saw a model for $59.99 but didn't see any real reviews)
- Aputure (saw a model for around $40 but didn't see any real reviews)

Are there any advanced features I should be looking for in a wireless shutter release (ability to take long "bulb" exposures, ability to focus before snapping picture, anything else)?

Any information is appreciated. Thanks!

Whenever I have questions about Oly stuff, I usually search the discussions here:

Flickr Oly Group

Wealth of info and lots of opinions and reviews.

The search

I still haven't bought a remote yet. I'm still trying to figure out how to get the flash off the camera lol.

Good luck!

I will definitely check out the Oly Flickr group. I want to reduce camera shake, practice taking self portraits, etc. so I think a good remote will come in handy.

Thanks again for the info!!
