  • Wireless remote shutter trigger

    Can anyone help? I am looking for a wireless radio (not IR) shutter trigger for my E-30 with a decent range. The IR ones are only any good if they are pointed straight at the front of the camera. Don't want pics of yours truly!

    There are some from Hong Kong on eBay such as http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wireless-R...item335589aa8a

    Any good? Has anyone got such a gizmo that works OK?

    Hi Sylvatica
    I bought a Phottix Cleon II Wired/Wireless Remote Control Set (WXD-189?) from a UK supplier on ebay that works fine on my E-510 and E-620 from 15+ meters through the wall i.e. I was inside the camera was in the garden. I am not sure if the E-30 has the same connector though?

      Yes, I have, and I can also recommend a 1st class eBay/Amazon and direct seller who I have had the pleasure to deal with on many occasion.

      UK Highland Photography.

      Find them on eBay, Amazon and on their own www site. However, the link to the kit I use is here:

      Take no notice that it says they are for Canon, they are universal, and fir on the hot shoe connector. I have this set of 3 receivers and one trigger and use them for all my off camera studio and speedlight flash shots.

      They really are good.

      Hope this helps.

          I use one with an E-5 - also seems to be compatible with the E-30:

          There's a good blogspot about it here:

          Works very well, excellent range (at least 75 yards) and programmable for interval shooting as well. I also got mine from UK Highland Photography - I can highly recommended them.
