          Comments about Ricoh CA-1 Cable Switch Shutter Release:

          Pros: good quality, works as advertised, single AAA cell required, half and full press shutter reaction Cons: the build quality feels a bit low. Some rubber grip would have helped to make it feel better. The shutter switch feels a bit light.

                  Comments about Ricoh CA-1 Cable Switch Shutter Release:

                  The Canon Powershot SX40 does not have a remote control option. However after modifying the firmware with CHDK software one can use the Ricoh cable through the USB port very conveniently especially at focal setting of 820mm

                  Comments about Ricoh CA-1 Cable Switch Shutter Release:

                  Used mostly with telephoto lenses on tripod for landscape and wildlife photography.

                  Lightly constructed, not in keeping with quality build of camera, but functions adequately.

                  On/off switch must be turned off after use to prevent battery discharge.
