The MT-636 timer remote control unites the functions of several remote controls in one device. It supports both manual shutter release as well as programmable functions such as delayed release, time exposure as well as interval and continuous shooting. The timer even allows HDR bracketing with up to 9 exposures. All the functions of this device can be set to the second and they can be used individually or in any combination. Using the supplied Olympus RM-UC1 type connecting cord you can connect the remote control to your camera. And the remote control even allows you to release the shutter of compatible cameras via infrared.
The up to 9 shutter speeds of a bracketing, can be programmed by choice: either descending, ascending or mixed. You only have to set an explicit shutter speed for each exposure you plan to make. After you press the start button, the bracketing runs automatically. Note: The shortest shutter speed you can set is 1 second. The very same applies to time exposure in general.
The timer has a two-step shutter button. Press the button halfway down to focus and all the way down to release the camera shutter. For a manual time exposure you can lock the shutter button. Then the timer counts up until you finish the time exposure. On video-capable cameras on which video capturing is controlled by the photo shutter button, you can even start and stop video shots using the MT-636.
The MT-636 provides an infrared mode that allows allows you to release the camera shutter via infrared on certain cameras made by Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Samsung and Sony. When used with cameras from most of these brands the MT-636 only supports direct single release.
