G2 & TW-282 wireless timer remote: combo not OK
Jun 21, 2011

I bought this and found that although full communication appeared OK, including half-press AF, the shutter would not trigger. The item otherwise is nicely-made with quite a good user manual and if it worked in all departments then I'd be happy with it, I think.

I'm in touch with the supplier and will report further when the problem is resolved. one way or the other. So till then no names etc.

The supplier says that he tested it with the GH2, but not with the G2.

In the meantime I suggest that if you're thinking of ordering this remote get it in writing loud and clear that your specific model is fully supported. Don't rely on assurances in advertisements, even if your model is named.

Sorry to be cagey about the identity of the supplier, but I want to be fair, and anyway it's possible that I'm doing something wrong. The manual has no trouble-shooting help nor it seems is there one on pixelHK.com's (the manufacturer's) website, unless I've missed this.
