I bought this remote shutter for my DMCGX1, in order to take shakefree HDR photos.
Delivery was within the 20 day timeframe as promised, as always.
Upon arrival the remote shutter unfortunately did not function as advertised.
Pressing the button halfway did start the AutoFocus (AF) but pressing it fully did not release the shutter.

Skip to Conclusion if you dont need to know how I fixed it.

After a quick google I surmised that GX1 remote shutters differ from the GF and GH series. Without going too much detail, the remotes work by having three distinct power resistance states by which the camera infers the controls: One for "standby", one for "AF", and one for "shutter release". The amount of resistance differs for the different camera series.

I opened up the remote shutter (2 simple screws) and noted the three resistors and their circumvention circuits with the pressureplates to switch them off. Through trial and error with a piece of spare wire I learned that the combination of the second and third resistor (so circumventing the first resistor) adds up to the exact resistance needed to set the shutter release.

By simply folding over the first resistor I was able to circumvent that resistor and create the resistance needed for shutter release.

So now when I halfpress the button the camera AF and Shutter release all at the same time. Pressing the button down fully doesnt do anything. So although unfortunately I cant use the remote shutter for Bulbexposure, I can now make shakefree photos. (And as the Bulbexposure on the GX1 goes to 2min only anyway, this isnt a major loss.)

Conclusion
The Remote Shutter is of decent quality build, especially for this price. It did not work outofthebox for my GX1, which I assumed as it is similar in series to the GF and GH. However, with a simple trick (which anybody with a screwdriver and a thumb can do) it can work for the GX1 as well. Certainly a cheaper alternative to the €50, official remote shutter which has the same functions.

I received the Shutter Remote Control RSL1 about 2 weeks after date of order, which is reasonable.
The unit looks good, quality of materials and workmanship are OK. It functions as it should, no problems at all.
I can not say anything about reliability, but I expect it to be OK, as the unit looks quite robust.
At this moment, I am quite satisfied with this RSL1.
