    I use this cable release with 100% mechanical cameras: Leica M6, Yashica 124 G (medium format TLR) among others. Usually for night/twilight shots with a tripod. My older cable release was a generic brand and over time it started getting stuck in the pushed in position, making me waste many shots. So I wanted to get something very reliable and very smooth. I think I have found it.

        Comments about Nikon AR-3 Threaded Cable Release:

        Cable release is one of those odd necessities you only miss when you absolutely have to have it. I ordered mine because I recently got caught without one when I needed to release the shutter for long exposure ttime. This one is very precise, smooth and easy to operate. The sleeve is much better than the cheap plastic unit I used to have. The instrument gets 5 stars, B&H 3 -- the packaging had been opened, and it was open in a way that it could not have happened during transit. Anyways, I like the release!

              This cable release is being used on a Nikon F3 35mm film camera. It functions as described. It is only 1' long, so slightly short, but it makes it a lot easier for packing up to travel.
              Although I don't own a Lecia, I did notice others say it will work on some Lecia models, which does add double duty for it in the future if I do pick one of those up.

                This works as advertised and have no real issues. I attach directly to my lens so the mirror will automatically lift. Works great. Maybe wish I had a bit more reach so consider possibly getting one a bit longer if you tend to step away from the camera a bit or are holding your own light.

                    Comments about Nikon AR-3 Threaded Cable Release:

                    I liked its short length, sturdy build. The lock is effective and very secure and easy to release. This is a professional grade product. Setting the lock is very easy, but the time it took to figure it out the first time was really embarrassing.

                    A well-designed professional-grade product that even works on an M7 Leica.

                                  It's Nikon. It's made in Japan. It's extremely solid. I think I couldn't have picked a better release cable. The length is short enough that you don't need to tie a loop first to use the cable. It feels quite indestructible.

                                      I needed a Cable Release to use with my Minolta SRT-200 when shooting with slow film like Ilford PANF +. The product works as advertised.

                                        I use this to trigger a Fuji X series camera because I'm too cheap, as others tell me, to buy a digital remote trigger. Yes, this is a mechanical relic but it does the job. There are cheaper ones but I intend to hand this one down for 4 generations - it is that good.
                                        BTW, some Canon accessories work on FUJI cameras; I may try my Canon remote trigger some day.

                                        Very good quality. it looks durable. better than other release cables on the market. you can use it not only with nikon cameras. I just wish it was a little bit longer. sometimes feels too short, but is not a major problem at all. the quality is what matters.

                                          I cannot find manual cable release here in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I tried cheap cable release [*] but after sometime it will fail, to my frustration i bought this from B&H even though ironically the courrier cost is more expensive from the item itself.I'm satisfied with this product, well built, which is expected from a NIKON product. Highly recommended, my camera by the way is Fujifilm X100S.

                                            This cable release does precisely what it needs to do. I've used it with my Fuji X-E1 to great success, and it should work well with my Pentax 67ii. The locking feature is a bit awkward and takes some fiddling — you'll probably need both hands to enable it — but otherwise it's an excellent product.
