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.

I greatly enjoy my Holga camera. I have the gold "Holgawood" one. This shutter release fits perfectly onto it without any issues. Slips on, slips off. The cable is fairly short, which is a bit of a pain, but it works just like it should.

For those who think their cable is broken after the first use, because it sticks "in" - that's a normal operation. There's a ring at the base of the plunger. Just push in on that ring to release it. Otherwise you could wear out your thumb having to manually hold the plunger in for long periods of time.

I had a different issue with mine. The thing you press down on is a circle - and this screws into the top of the unit. Meaning it can easily unscrew. I had mine unscrew on me and get lost under something in my kitchen. I had to use this for a while with just the needle-like center unit to press on. Meaning I had to find something to put between my thumb and that center in order to do it safely. Luckily, one day while doing yoga I happened to spot where the top had gone and I could screw it back into place. So be aware that the top can screw off.

Other than that the unit easily goes on and off, it doesn't interfere with the tripod hole on my Holga, and you can still get to all other controls.

Highly recommended for people who enjoy playing with the Holga and its many capabilities.

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).

I love the simple concept of this shutter release. It is a must for long-exposures on a tripod. I assume a longer analogue shutter release cable can be used, but I haven't tried this.

This shutter release is easily installed and fits most securely when subsequently attached to a tripod mount.

However, I have noticed one problem. I used this for a long exposure on a gorilla-grip-sort of tripod (you know the ones...) Anyway, the cable was so short and stiff (having a metal core) that I felt my shakes were transmitted to the camera itself. This left the first image blurry after a 30 second exposure. However, I found the right position to overcome this, and you will too. Just something to keep in mind.

Works perfectly. I had been looking everywhere for this and was so happy to be able to get it here. It was easy to attach and use. Gets the pictures just like I wanted. With the factories closing I might have to get an extra just in case.

I was thrilled when this arrived. Construction looked good, nice cable release. I am able to use this on my HOLGA TLR, my HOLGAPAN 612 and regular Holgas. I've used it to mount a mechanical self-timer which works great on this with the Holgas.

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.

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.....
