The manual, on page 38, says that you can plug a remote release into the microphone/remote release connector. Typically, they don't seem to provide any infoemaytion on how the release should be wired. The small picture in the manual just shows a typical miniplug going into the connector. Amazon sells an internalometer with what appears to be a compatible plug. It's made by fotodiox and only costs $35. I guess it would take a little research or experimentation to figure out if this would work, but there seems to be no reason that a properly wired intervalometer would not work with the X-E1.
