    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yup, It's The Goods... Had one of these before color TV; used it forever, then lost it someplace. Wonderful to still find this one and inexpensive as well. Unless you're some kind of pro with half a dozen bodies chasing all over to get the cover of The National Geriatric, this puppy will get the job done for you reliably, right up until the moment Hilary goes on The O'Reilly Factor...

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not reliable, even for slow paced shooting I'm someone who generally goes for the cheaper option in situations where I don't think there will be a noticeable difference. That's particularly true with things like this, where the product can't really operate better or worse than other similar products because of the simplicity of its intended purpose. My previous cable release was the first one I bought, for about the same price as this one. It lasted me a couple of years, but then I lost it. I bought two of these. One got stuck in the extended position when I was just toying with it and getting a feel for it after taking it out of the packaging. The second one got to touch a camera, but it too got stuck in the extended position after a few days of shooting. I was not using the screw lock on either occasion, and I was gentle (especially the second time around, because I was out shooting in a situation where I had to rely on this cable, and I knew the other one I bought had broken easily) I would not recommend buying this product, even to save money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bower Cable Release Needed a cable release for a Yashica MAT 124G (an old TLR camera). Ordered this baby and it worked perfectly. Great to see that you can still get standard cable releases for Film camera's.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Old-School Cable Release Bought this to replace a similar unit I had once back when the Earth was still cooling. What I received is very close - but is not as pictured. The screw lock is not at a 90 angle to the finger tabs as shown; it's an in-line collar that tightens down to grab the cable. it takes a bit of practice at first to use it - but there is an advantage that it can be both set and released with only one hand. How it behaves after some time may become problematic if not kept squeaky clean though. Also, the finger tabs in the picture appear to be metal, but in fact are plastic. Still, they are strong and will not break from normal use. It says the covering is vinyl - but you should think more along the lines of a bicycle brake cable since there is something internally to prevent collapse onto the cable. Perfect for my needs. At these bargain prices, I also got the 20 version.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No. I bought this for my Fuji X-T10. The cable release works OK but the stiffness of the vinyl is annoying and contributes weight and leverage causing it to unthread from the shutter release if you walk around with it (camera on tripod). Then it falls out. I loved the idea of a classic mechanical shutter release but now I'm going to go with the USB unit from Fuji.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I juts love having the option of an antique and more analog way to remote shoot, specially on those times where you need zero vibration for the photo to be taken, even the vibration of the shutter click can cause a little bit of blurriness, so no more with my vinyl cable release!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad for the price. Decent little cable release. The T mode (where the shutter is locked open until you depress the ring) is a little problematic, as the ring doesn't always unlock smoothly. However, it is very inexpensive. Operation is otherwise very smooth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrifty and Functional I wanted a thrifty, reliable old-fashioned cable-release for my tripod-mounted landscape and nature shots. Using the self-release timer was often not accurate enough as to timing. This gives me total control.
