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.
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.
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.

Unfortunately, this cable release does NOT fit the Holga wide angle camera! Yet amazon had it as a buy with your Holga as the Holga Camera needs a longer pin on the cable release. Read morePublished on July 21, 2014 by H.Kahn
