Apologies if this has been asked before.

Does anyone know of a wireless remote for or that is compatible with the EM-5?

Thanks in advance.

A quick search on Ebay throws up this:

No experience of it, though.

Oh, and welcome!

Hello and welcome.

I have the Yongnuo WR-159 01 which works very well. I got it from Amazon

The price seems to have gone up as I paid only about 12. It does not mention compatibility with the OM-D but if it works with the Oly E510/E520 it will be compatible.

No experience of this particular model but I do have a Pixel TW282 which I use with an E-5 and it's well made, versatile and works very well at up to 100m range. You might need to purchase a separate connecting plug depending on your camera.

I bought a JJC remote from Amazon, only to find that the wireless receiver seemed to be faulty. I wasn't happy with the quality either so returned it to the vendor.

Then I bought a Hama DCCS wireless remote from Hawks Photo Video. It was more expensive, but much higher quality - and it worked too!!
