Dot Line DL-0460 overview

  • 1Description

This small DLC Soft Shutter Release Button from RPS Studio works with Fujifilm mirrorless cameras, the Nikon Df DSLR, and Leica M, as they all accept a standard shutter release. Once it is screwed into the shutter release socket, the DLC Soft Shutter Release enables enhanced tactile response and reduces camera movement. Its 1/2" button diameter provides a low profile method to a softer and lighter means of releasing the shutter.

Dot Line DL-0460 reviews

DLC Soft Shutter Release Button (Small) is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for now So far so good, but my experience is that these screw-on shutter buttons do not stay on the camera (Fujifilm X100S & XT-1) very long. I suppose if one wanted to use Locktite they might stay on longer, but hten there are very negative issues associated with going down that road..... so enjoy while it stays on the camera.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK, but too easy to lose The first time out with this button, I realized at one point that it was no longer on the camera. I took a chance and walked back to the car, and I luckily spotted it on the ground behind the tailgate. As far as functionality, it does do it's job. I can easily locate and feel the shutter release, and the soft press does work nicely for taking the shot without vibration. I've since started using a simple, soft sticky bumper the size of the shutter button. Picked up at the hardware store. If I lose it, I just stick on another one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inexpensive OK it is inexpensive but is designed for the older classic range finder cameras the screw is too long for the current M's so it does not sit flush with the shutter button.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It does not work for me. I purchased this soft shutter release for a new Fujifilm camera body. In my opinion the threads do not match those on the camera body, the button sits entirely too high for my preference and the diameter is about 1mm too large, again for my preference. I have purchased similar items before and they usually ship with a small o-ring to keep the threads in tension and reduce the likelihood of losing it. It did not come with an o-ring.  Having said that the item appears to be machined metal, is well finished and reasonably priced if it works for you; just does not work for me on this cameral body (X-T3). As always the order placement with B&H was fast and easy; it was shipped it promptly and I am sure B&H would accept its return without question but due to its nominal price the return is not worth the trouble.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waiting to get lost. I'd read these come loose, but they REALLY come loose. Takes about two turns to screw in and that's the problem, they don't go deep enough into the shutter. Now I've developed the habit of giving it a tighten with my forefinger each time I pull the camera from the bag but I won't be surprised if I lose it, and I'll not buy another. I won't use locktite as I want the use of my manual cable release to go into the shutter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works great but... other reviews point out it comes loose fairly often. I found it best to tighten it before going out on a shoot. I lost mine a little over six weeks after I bought it. I had a spare on another camera I was not using so luckily I felt no loss.� It did its job admirably and looked nice on my Fuji X100f. Since it is the only the cost of a few coffees I might be willing to get another as a spare.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent, save for one major reservation. I purchased this product for use with my X-E2 and immediately noticed an improvement in the tactile sensitivity of the shutter release compared to the standard, unimproved button on the camera. This product is not, however, without some considerations - namely it's tendency to come unscrewed and fall off fairly easily. PROS: By raising the surface of the shutter release and providing a larger surface area than the Fuji's standard shutter release, this product subtly and favorably changes the shooting experience, and I found that I immediately preferred shooting the camera with the hair trigger functionality of a soft shutter release. Instead of pressing the factory shutter release into the camera with the tip of one's finger, the soft shutter release enables shutter operation with a more sensitive, gentle, and ergonomic action that feels more crisp and intentional than the comparatively mushier feel of the factory shutter release. This improvement in perceived sensitivity and control was immediately useful in low light hand-held shots, where any excessive motion of the camera no matter how minuscule risks transmitting into an unsharp exposure. CONS: The first and most pressing issue with this button is that --at least in use with the X-E2-- it tends to unscrew with so much as a sneeze or bad glance in its direction. Within the first few minutes of taking some shots around the house, I found that the button had become perilously loose in the normal course of taking a couple dozen exposures and turning the camera on and off a few times. Over the next few days the button fell off of the camera many times, often while in transit in the bag or when slung. I ended up putting thread locker on the button's threads before screwing it back in and it has stayed solidly in place since. I can't imagine using this button for street, outdoor, travel photography, etc. or even in active everyday use without a similar modification.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I bought 3 Bought one of these to try on my Fujifilm X-T2. I saw nothing inferior about this button (meaning some folks mentioned they liked the more expensive one better etc...). Every bit as good as a higher priced one in my humble opinion. I also have 2 Fujifilm X-T2's. I subsequently bought 2 more for each of these cams. No need to procrastinate about buying this baby. Just do it :)
