Tried fiddling with it a little, pulling the cable housing, and couldn't get it to release.

A must-have accessory for the Holga, this ingenious shutter release is a great tool to help improve your long-exposure shots with this camera.
Kelly Schaefer
There was no locking mechanism so the trigger had to be depressed for the duration of the shot.

I fnd it very funny to be able to outfit these (much less than profesional) cameras with tools that help to make professional images. The shutter release works as advertised, doesn't hurt the wallet, and is really necessary (because getting a crisp focus with these cameras is hard enough to begin with).

A must-have accessory for the Holga, this ingenious shutter release is a great tool to help improve your long-exposure shots with this camera. Works great with or without a tripod, and you can't beat the price either! Just buy it already.....

I was really looking forward to using this with my brand new Holga 120 I also purchased on Amazon. When I got it, it looked and felt like a quality item, however, when I went to place it on my Holga, the notch on the bottom didn't line up with the tripod mount on the bottom of the camera. The mount is dead-center on the bottom of my camera (next to the B N switch) but the notch on shutter release to accommodate this is slightly off center. Take a close look at yours to make sure it'll work before you buy it.

I bought this last year for my holga 120N and it fit well and worked perfectly. There was no locking mechanism so the trigger had to be depressed for the duration of the shot. The problem is the cable broke after a couple months and jammed. I got a replacement from amazon and that jammed. I would not recommend this due to it's short life.

If you are like me, you may think the Depressor Doodad is stuck or broken upon the first use, but you may be mistaken. The shutter-release cable has an auto-lock feature that I was not aware of. Underneath the depressor is the ridged ring. Press that down to release the mechanism. Other than that mild confusion which a quick search of the internet solved, it seems to be a solid product so far.

I love this product. Makes it a lot easier to get clearer shots with the Holga. I actually keep it attached all the time now, whether or not I am using a tripod. Worth the money.

This cable release does what it is supposed to- it depresses the shutter button and holds it there until you release it. Unfortunately it has some flaws.

The disc lock (the little wheel that makes it "stick open") likes to engage whether I want it to or not. It's supposed to release when I let go the button and the lock should only work when I turn it. Instead I press the button and the lock engages, forcing me to flick it to close the shutter. It didn't use to do this but the more I used it the more the lock stuck.

The end of the button that your press to open the shutter likes to unscrew itself while you're trying to make the disc lock stop locking.

The cable eventually failed completely and as a result it wasn't depressing enough to completely open the shutter, which caused me to waste a full roll of film that I had spent hours double exposing. I was not amused.

Fortunately I have a solution- the cable is just a standard mechanical cable release that you would use on any old school film camera. Just unscrew the cable from the plastic mount that goes round your lens, throw it in the garbage where it belongs, and buy a good cable release to put on the mount. I recommend a Gepe cloth covered cable with a t-lock.
