Excellent value E-3 Remote cable

I purchased one of these for my E-3 from Ebay: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/HQ-Remote-Swit...QQcmdZViewItem it took a couple of weeks to get here as it was opened by customs but it works very well indeed and for the price is terrific value for money.

What really irritates me is that camera manufacturers love fitting ridiculously small fiddly plastic caps on remote and flash sockets - why? The sockets look like an aftermarket bodge. Why not put them under a nice rubber flap like the USB and power supply sockets? Sorry, rant over.

Re: Excellent value E-3 Remote cable

Thanks Chris. I was looking for one of those and the price is right. There are only 3 left with this seller in case anyone else is considering making a purchase.

I wish I'd known that before spending ten times as much on the Olympus version, albeit back in my E20 days!

This guy has then in stock:
http://stores.ebay.com/FOTOPUS-ONLINE-STORE

I've used him twice and had no problems with less than 7 day delivery both times. I ripped the lead from the socket on the last cable, so I've just ordered another at 6.62.
