    I saw this release kit online a while ago, and thought it looked kind of gimmicky. I love my holga, but really you never know how well anything that works with a holga will be made. Thankfully I was totally wrong!
    I needed a cable release anyway, for my yashica, and saw that this was a cable release combined with a holga attachment. So it works as a two for one for me. I just used it on a dark rainy day with my holga on a tripod, it worked perfect. I fits in place nicely without having to be forced on, but also doesnt feel loose like it could fall off. If you think you could use this I'd go for for it, I'm sure you'll get photos you wouldnt get otherwise.

    Like all things Holga, the Holga shutter release is poorly made and often jams. But hey, the fun of Holga is unpredictability right? So even though this product feels cheap, jams sometimes, and doesnt quite have a long enough cord, its the best way to get stable long exposures from your Holga. And it is a must have whenever you're using the bulb setting. Anyone with a Holga should have this product also.

    Comments about Holga Shutter Release Kit:

    I use a Lumix DMC-LZ30 which had no shutter release kit available. Using this and a helping hand solder bracket holder I was able to create a very nice working Shutter Cable Release for my camera with mounts to the tripod. Perfect for my solution.

      Comments about Holga Shutter Release Kit:

      I bought this shutter release for the Holga 120PC camera and it works great and is easy to use. One problem I'm having is that the shutter sticks in open position especially in cold temperatures, however, I don't think this is a shutter release issue.

      The shutter release works great and is a life saver for shorter (1-2 sec) and longer exposures for this camera.

        It is pretty basic in operation. Easily allows the BULB function of the HOLGA to be used with ease. I would recommend to any HOLGA owner to just buy one and throw it in your bag, you never know when you made need it!

        Best Holga Accessory?

              Comments about Holga Shutter Release Kit:

              This item can be used in regular mode(press and release), or in a sticky long exposure mode (press the trigger and walk away). Simply rotate the thingie near the thumb trigger. I have not had any problems with it getting stuck in the wrong mode. Maybe the negative reviewers don't realize that this cable has two functions? Maybe they do, and it is a typical Holga product? Id still get this item for long exposure.

                      it's a little unreliable, but it's what you'd expect from a Holga accessory. With a little use however you can figure out when its going lock and when it won't on your own.

                            It's a pretty straight forward piece of equipment and it serves it's purpose well. The cord could be a little longer but works well.

                            This item is very useful for a Holga owner. This coupled with a monopod or tripod will open up a lot of options for low light images.

                            Great for long exposures. If you don't have one already, get one!!!

                                I used this shutter release for a Holga pinhole to get long exposures. Simple design that works well.

                                  great for doing night shots and the cable release separates so you can use on your SLR

                                      If you have a Holga and want to make using the bulb mode a little easier then this is a useful little piece of molded plastic and shutter release cable.
