Advice with wireless remote please

Hi, I am still learning with my new O-EM1, I need to get a wireless remote for my O-EM1. Which one should I get? It was easier choice with canon but I am perservering
It's main use is Fungi photography with occasional flash. I don't at the moment want to use my iPad or phone. Suggestions please and what do you use!
Kind regards mike

Thanks Peter, I realise that I did not include this in the original thread, have you tried TTL with the Hahnel? Or is it manual only? The reson of asking is that Hahnel does the combi trigger as well.
Kind regards mike

Re: Advice with wireless remote please

Hi again, I have tried my canon 580ex11 on the hot shoe of my O-EM1 set as a master and it fired my 480ex11 off camera both set in manual mode. Obviously the 580 is big and bulky, I believe larger than the O-EM1. Which completely defies the idea of micro 4/3 system. I must admit to being more than a little worried doing this exercise in case of damage to to either unit?
Kind regards mike

I use the Canon 580 do do my slash photography with the EM5 & EM1 with no problems, I also have a Metz TTL flash which is excellent & good value for money. For Macro I use a Sigma Macro flash which although is not TTL works fine as well

I use primarily an iPod, or a smart phone with the built in wifi and Oly's app.
