    I use it to take pictures without shaking the camera. It's ideal for me because it is long enough to stand away from the camera, and the slack probably helps avoid movement. The lock can be used or not, it's really cool. Nothing bad about it; in fact someone put a table on top of it and it's fine.

    This is similar to the cable releases that come with Cambo technical cameras, and I was hoping it would last longer than they did (two failed on me quickly). This one died even quicker. The housing must stretch, because the prong barely extends a few millimeters when the plunger is all the way down.

    A cheaper vinyl covered cable release has been working fine, so I'll stick with it.

      Good, but not for the X-E1

            I bought this to use with my Fuji X-E1. Unfortunately, the cable does not thread very deeply into the shutter button on the X-E1 and thus snapped off soon after purchase leaving a chunk of the thread permanently lodged in the shutter button. I can no longer use a standard cable release with my X-E1. So, while it will work with the X-E1, I would not recommend it. Otherwise, it seems a good cable. Hard to determine a star rating, but I figure my scenario is more the fault of my camera than the cable, but perhaps the thread metal is of a lower, and thus weaker quality.

              Works great with my Hasselblad 500cm. It's the perfect length. The cloth sleeve makes it more flexible than that other plastic coated ones I have tried.

                Comments about Gepe Cloth Covered Cable Release w/Disc-Lock 20":

                Arrived quickly, works exactly as expected! A little finicky screwing the threads into a Modern Copal shutter, but this may be a function of the screw tip being parallel to the lens board and broadening to fit a variety of shutter threads. This is my first cable release, so I can't comment on whether this is an issue with other cable releases. Even with that (very) minor issue, I am incredibly satisfied.

                Awesome device. I do wish there's an easier way to unlock the button. All in all I love it.

                  This is a sleek set of mechanical shutter release cable with cloth cover. It is well made, but the finger grip is a bit too small. When you press the metal disc with a thumb, you must squeeze the other two fingers very hard to prevent the grip from slipping through. If you sweat in the field after a long hard hike, wipe out your hands clean and dry before touching this cable release. For those with big fingers, find something else.

                          Much more flexible than the plastic covered releases, especially when it's cold. Disc lock is very easy to use.
