Re: Wire remote shutter release

You could check the button side to see if the pin and button wires correspond.

The Yellow being the Common and the Red being the Shutter.





This is a sample of the Canon circuit diagram



Unlike the Canon,

Oly will close all the 3 on shutter release.

Still don't know why the If the shutter and ground is reversed, the SCP and some functions in the menu is disabled.

Re: Wire remote shutter release

Don't want to cut the wires, always a disaster for me..........

But have just received another remote release a "Shoot remote release". I can now get the chimping button to work with the release cable attached.

I think its something to do with the sliding button on the release handle. If its slightly engaged, the review button does not work, but seems to Ok when definetly out of gear so to speak.........hey ho..

New release has a 10 foot cable...........

Re: Wire remote shutter release

Also have a fleabay cheapie RS-60E3 and it works on my Mark II flawlessly. I still prefer the Oly app though, even though it is a bit of a bother. Use on stars/moon all the time. Just set up the shot and activate the W-Lan. Simple. The couple of seconds time is worth it to be able to sit back well away from the camera and scope.
