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.

    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. ...........

                              Since we're not looking at our shutter buttons when we take a photo, touch is the only way to tell where the button is. Most digital cameras have very smoothly contoured shutter buttons. This product definitely helps locate the shutter button. No more press press press on the camera body while NOT taking the photo!
                              Yes...it works great!!!

                                  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."

                                    Makes it easy to quickly locate the shutter button and then apply soft consistent pressure.

                                      the sticker does not hold its adhesion very well to the shutter button. button snags onto the camera bag when camera is taken out of holster (think tank).

                                        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.

                                            I use this on my canon 6d. I like it because I use the back button for focusing so I want to be able to find the shutter button quickly and feeling for it is nice because you can feel the grip, however, it's not a necessary item.
