    Nikon AR-3 reviews

    AR-3 Threaded Cable Release is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 94.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I only wish it were longer! This thing is great--build quality seems good, I have no complaints about it ergonomically. It's just a little short. I wonder if other reviewers who claim to have broken the lock immediately are really just confused about how the lock works? In any case, I haven't had any difficulties with it. In this troubling, increasingly digital time, it's also good for alarming people who've never seen one. You depress the button and the pin comes out, and their eyes get large. Pretty amusing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very smooth cable release I use this cable release with 100% mechanical cameras: Leica M6, Yashica 124 G (medium format TLR) among others. Usually for night/twilight shots with a tripod. My older cable release was a generic brand and over time it started getting stuck in the pushed in position, making me waste many shots. So I wanted to get something very reliable and very smooth. I think I have found it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth operation and works on Mamiya 7 Unless one is in a weird position that requires standing far from the camera, this relatively short cable release is still plenty long enough.� It is flexible enough to stand behind cameras having a release on the front.� It operates smoothly.� Note that if one uses the locking feature, the spring is strong enough to cause a slight jerk when the button pops back out.� The shutter is likely closed by then, but it may be worth holding the button while releasing the lock -- test that on your camera.� I'm also happy that it pushes far enough to work on the Mamiya 7 -- apparently not all do.� The price is great; the same quality Gepe cable that's longer is WAY longer, and nearly $70 if you can find it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and reliable cable release. I previously purchased a different cable release at around the same price and found that it was hard to push down and you could never rely on the lock to stay in place for long periods of time. The opposite is the case with this release: the plunger is easy to push and the action is smooth, and I've been able to do one-hour exposures with no problem. The build quality is sufficient and the lock is quick and easy to disengage. While it takes a moment to completely disable the lock, you feel confident that the plunger is not going to stick. Overall, it's hard to ask for a better cable release.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A well built and smooth cable release I use this cable release on all of my large format lenses. The AR3 cable releases been abused, dropped in streams (and dried out), and stepped on and still operate as when they were new. While this cable release costs more than others, it is worth the addtional cost. The housing is much sturdier (has not cracked) and the spring action is still quite smooth. You'll likely go through two or three of the less expensive releases before you wear out a single AR3 release.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional and inexpensive This cable release does precisely what it needs to do. I've used it with my Fuji X-E1 to great success, and it should work well with my Pentax 67ii. The locking feature is a bit awkward and takes some fiddling you'll probably need both hands to enable it but otherwise it's an excellent product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Nikon product! This is a must have for photographers who like to shoot night scenes with the help of tripods where there's zero tolerance of any movements to the camera. It's great for B setting or any slow shuttle speed tripod shootings. You can always trust Nikon for great product quality. The length of the cable is just nice if you are standing close to the camera during shooting. Had one some years ago but lost it when moving around. It's a great quality product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mechanical cable thingy for all Bought this for use with my Nikon F3, for long exposures/remote release and to add to my ever expanding collection of photography gear. Needless to say, this is a useful piece of kit, but was pleasantly surprised that it worked with my Holga 135PC, which is incredibly useful for a pinhole camera. It functions a little clunkily in the Holga, but works well enough. Can be locked to hold shutter open, or operated in standard bulb mode. Would ideally like something longer than 12, but that's being fussy. Fantastic product that does what it says on the box.
