**** Remote plug fixed ****

I filed down the plug until it became 6.35mm or a bit under and now it slides in/out without a problem - and still works with the wireless link etc.

In the junk drawer I happened to find a tiny flat diamond type file to do the job, but any small Swiss type flat fine file will do the same. The plug shell is only nickel plated brass so is easy to file down.

Tested on both E-P3 and E-PL5 and all OK, plug still firm but it stays in one piece now.

So the advice to anyone buying the remotes or third party plug-in gear is to measure and adjust the plugs until they fit without drama.

Regards..... Guy
