    Hi there,

    I am not sure whether any remote control can work with Canon Rebel K2
    non-date body? What about Olympus C4000 digital camera?

    Thanks a lot!

    Yes, according to Adorama. The RC-5 will work with the K2. I use this
    remote with my Rebel Ti Date.
    I'm not sure about that particular model. I know the Oly C-5000 comes with
    a remote. Try asking in instead.

    No, according to everything else. Firstly, there's no button on the K2
    (non-date) body to activate a remote sensor.

    Plus, there's this:
    PLEASE NOTE: This non-date version is NOT compatible with Canon RC5
    wireless remote. The sister EOS Rebel K2 Date body is required for RC5
    remote capability.

    And this:
    Among compatible cameras are Canon EOS Rebel K2 Date and Rebel T2 Date.

    (Just putting this out there for nyone else searching for this via
    Google news or other historic services.)

    Recently found that the Adorama site was in error about grip compatibilty for
    Maxxum cameras ... be careful.
