I bought these almost on impulse. Ok, so it was on impulse. However, as simple a concept as they are, it has quickly become a feature on my camera that I truly appreciate. I was very surprised to see how easily I can find the shutter button. Yes, I know, I should know where the shutter button is, but one must admit that often times there is a little bit of searching while composing the picture.
Is it a must-have? No.
Is it an item that will improve your picture taking ability? Of course not.
But it is an item that will facilitate the process to enough of a degree that you will notice and say "Hmmmm.....neat."

I use these over the video record buttons on our d5200s. The record button is next to an info button and a exp-comp button, and to find it quick on a multi-cam video shoot this sticky button works great, sort of. When the temperature is over 95deg or so the sticky doesnt hold as it should. too bad i would have given it 5 stars.

        allows me to feel where my shutter releas buttons is without thinking & provides a good feel.the glue also works well, I had to reposition the dots a couple of times; but it holds on like a champ.

            Comments about ProDot Shutter Button Upgrade (Red, 2-Pack):

            Having a few different camera systems, some that seldom get used, a shutter button sometimes gets missed when I'm in a hurry. The Dots aren't really necessary but do help my fingers find a nearly flush button. They attach easily and don't come off. Pretty expensive for what they are, though. But on an absolute scale, not a lot of money.

                I thought I would try this because of the positive reviews, so I put it on my Sony A77 II. I can see how some would like the feel of the prodot but on my camera it sticks up too far. I tend to fire the shutter before I want to. If it was thinner I know I would like the addtion. But for me it's going away.

                  Works just as advertised. Used it for a couple of shoots and it is stick sticking well. Definitely decreases response time to when you press the shutter button. I recommend getting this if you're a sports photographer

                          Well this stayed on my camera for about two weeks.. In that time I had a lot of misfires because I couldnt tell how far I was pushing the button. I was shooting a wedding today and it came off at some point but I dont know when. I shot all night with sticky stuff on my button I couldnt get off. Very irritating!! If you use your camera often then I wouldnt waste my time with this product.

                              It is what you think it is - a piece of plastic with a sticky back. It works GREAT for me since I have an index finger that doesn't bend at the last joint. I usually have to use my middle finger to push the shutter - which means less fingers to hold the camera! Works Really Great for Me! It is also handy to be able to find the shutter button easier by feel, especially in an odd position. Hope it stays stuck on - only been using it for 2 weeks.

                                This shutter release accessory adds a level of comfortable cushioning to the shutter release and is great when hanging onto the shutter release fro extended periods as I frequently do when photographing wildlife. My only concern that comes to mind is how long it will stay in place as it is only attached by double sided tape, time will tell!

                                  A simple idea that is helpful. I sometimes have trouble finding my shutter release by feel because the button is so smooth and level with the surrounding surface, especially if I'm wearing gloves. This soft little stick-on is textured just enough that it's easy to feel the difference.The little "dot" has an adhesive backing. We'll see how long that lasts before it unsticks.The listing shows the dots as red, but they are black, if that makes a difference.

                                  You would not think that something so small would make that much of a difference. But it does. Photographing with the ProDot shutter button is a lot better on the shooting finger.

                                      far too expensive for what they are - would be ok if they would stick to the shutter button ( plastic or metal ) on a more permanent basis - they become dislodged with repeated actions of removal and replacement into a camera bag - and that would be ok if they were inexpensive to allow for several replacements - come on sellers it,s only a piece of rubber, and they are no doubt made in China for pennies - a two pack should be $2 - or use a more permanent adhesive - on the pro side - they will never wear out because they don,t stay on long enough

                                        I bought these after stumbling across them on the B&H page. I loved them at first and then after 2-3 weeks the thing started sliding off because of the summer heat. It left a gooey mess on my shutter button. I still have the second one in the bag if anyone wants it. ...........
