I bought these shutter buttons on Amazon. Apart from looking cool, the button makes it a lot easier to fire the shutter without camera shake. Instead of using the tip of my finger to operate the shutter, with the shutter release button fitted, I can use the area under the first joint, which results in more control and less camera shake. It also makes operating the camera one-handed easier. If needed I can focus and trigger the shutter with my thumb.

After reading the reviews I fitted a washer in the hope that doing so will help prevent the release button unscrewing while in use. Time will tell.

The supplied package included two shutter buttons and a wristband lens focus ring. I would rather they included a couple of washers for the release buttons and sold the wristband separately. Washers I need. Wristband focus rings, I do not.

  • May 4, 2017 and the first button dropped off some time while I was in the middle of a very busy event. I still like the shutter button very much, so I’ve super-glued the second one in place. I’ll add an update if that one ever goes AWOL.
  • December 13, 2017. I like these shutter buttons so much I bought another for my new camera.
