Incorrect info, see my other message two messages down.

(According to the Olympus C-Series accessory chart, the RM-1 *IS* compatible with the C-4000z. Usually the remote is selected by pushing the Drive button a few times (the one pushed for the timer feature).)

See http://www.olympus.co.uk/consumer/di...ccessories.pdf.

The C4000 and the C4040 share the same line but he footnote indicates that the remote is compatible with the C4040 ONLY.

My chart (from the same source) doesn't say that! Obviously they corrected the mistake, and I'll download the latest chart (but keep my old one since the new one doesn't have my C-700 on it anymore). That's why others also say the RM-1 is compatible with the C-4000...they're trusting Olympus' info to be correct since it is the horse's mouth.

Thanks for catching the mistake.

Many thanks fenlander and Mike_PEAT, for clearing that up. I kept seeing that information on ebay and was wondering if the remote could really be used on the c4000z.

Too bad that with the introduction of point- and-shoot cameras the good old cable release was abandoned. This goes for all digital cameras too, except for a Fuji SLR. I have tried to design a little cable-release addition for my C-4000, with no success so far.
