Re: Help needed

I think the answer is no, though I have seen clever DIY remotes that use plunger-style remotes strapped to the camera body and then push down on the shutter release button. Here's a site that's the "Last Word" on older Olympus cameras:

It sure would have been nice to have the infrared sensor on the back as well as the front. On the 500 (which also lacks the option for a wired remote), at least it extends to the top of the camera so you can trigger from above.
