I purchased this release to allow controlling the shutter from a distance, and it does that very well. I have also found that with the spool which allows the length to be easily controlled that I am using it even when I don't need to be far from the camera.

Don't buy

Terrible. Worked for 15 pictures and then quit working. Tried different tubing hoping it just had a leak and that didn't fix the problem. The piston at the end won't advance.

Very hard to use

I wanted a shutter air release to use for remote self portraiture. The product is very hard to use, I need to press with my two hands very hard for it to work. So I can't use it basically for the purpose I bought it for. I also paid a lot in shipping cost and I'm so disappointed. I don't recommend this product at all.

Buuuu :(

Didn´t work on my Thechnika. The coupling is to wide, it doesn´t fit between the lens and the lens holder.

Only lasted 3 years

I don't use the bulb release that much, but disappointing that it fell apart after 3 years. The bulb itself ripped in two. I understand that it's not an expensive item, but it let me down. A better quality product is required. Just disappointed.

It's 20 feet just like it says and it works amazing with my Argus C3 camera

Broke literally on first use.

This item literally broke on the first use. I would like a replacement or a refund if possible? Seems like it would work. But the tube connecting to the part that attaches to the camera came off.
