Re: Cable release - buyer beware!

I thought of radio controlled ones but was put off by them fitting to the camera in the same way as any other cable release, including my ill-fated JJC. I figured that if I got a genuine Oly, then at least I'd have some comeback if it too failed. But I respect Hahnel as a make, and if I'd come across one I would have tried it. I could only find "cheapy" ones.
