Add a cable release to any camera!
From the Schlaboratory!
Camera Shutter cable release threaded fittings, designed to accept the male end of a threaded shutter release cable. Otherwise unavailable, these widgets are mathematically correct CAD renderings of the ASA tapered thread used by the camera industry. A remote shutter function can be added to any camera by adapting one of these parts or derivatives to your camera or an attachment.
Included in this widget-pak are a general-purpose glue-on ferrule, an M3-sized nut, and a ferrule with an M3 thread - all with tapered threads. I have received my initial samples, and the tapered threads work perfectly - they look a little fuzzy until you thread the end of the cable release into them.
The piece with the M3 threaded shaft needs dressing / chasing before a nut will thread onto it, but seems to provide a strong fastening. Strong, Flexible Nylon is the default material for these parts - I think any material would work acceptably (but not tested yet), but why not cheapest?
Please contact me if you have questions or suggestions for how a remote shutter adaptor might be designed for your favorite camera!
