    Nice Solid Brass Shutter Buttons

    Brass Small Soft Shutter Button

    Paypal Payment to [email protected] - $5 + $1 shipping in US, $2 International

    If you buy one please email [email protected] with your mailing address to confirm.


    polished brass metal soft shutter release button. The addition of this soft shutter release allows for less camera shake when using slower shutter speeds. It also gives a much greater feel to the regular threaded button of most film cameras.

    They are machine cut from solid brass.


    - 12mm Diameter
    - All brass
    - Easily attached/detached
    - Nice finish
    - Cheapest Available
    - Gives the camera a great feel

    This is the cheapest you will find a soft shutter release button especially of this quality sold from within the US

    If you are interested in a Bulk/Wholesale type deal, Let me know and we can sort something out.

    (only issue i have are spontaneous shots now when i have the M9 turned on and it's hanging over my shoulder.. not specifically your shutter button issue.. but one in general when using shutter buttons on the M9.. makes shooting .. 'easier'

    )

    Re: Nice Solid Brass Shutter Buttons

    I have used soft shutter buttons on my Leicas for years. I just ordered a brass softie from Ollie. My method of keeping the shutter button from tripping or wearing out my battery is to use a small woman's coated one-piece hair band. Just wrap it around under the button a couple of times before putting the camera back in your bag. Only takes a second on and off and keeps the button from engaging.

    Got my 2 today! Very happy with mine. For the price, anyone who is curious about using one or needs a few spares should get some.

    Will it not just incorporate the standard threads?

    Re: Nice Solid Brass Shutter Buttons

    The newest Leica camera (M240) has a different thread pitch on the shutter release button. I think all prior M models had the same threads...

    Re: Nice Solid Brass Shutter Buttons

    Oliver,

    Thanks very much for sending the two replacements. The first two are probably lost somewhere in the postal system. The buttons are well machined and have a look and feel superior to any other buttons I've owned.

    I can confirm that the buttons do not fit the threads of the M Monochrom (which I have). And they likely don't fit the threads of the M 240 (which I don't have yet).

    They are perfect for the M9 and prior M-system shutter releases.

    Thanks again,

    Joe

    Re: Nice Solid Brass Shutter Buttons

    Oliver,

    The thread pitch is different for the M Monochrom and the M 240 (for whatever reason). The "old" shutter release buttons and some "old" cable releases thread in only part way on the new cameras. It's been discussed on various forums, but I haven't (obviously) been paying attention. Your brass buttons thread in only part way on my M Monochrom.

    Joe

    Re: Nice Solid Brass Shutter Buttons

    Purchased one and it would not work on my XPro 1 or any other camera I tried it on. Very frustrating trying to communicate with this seller. I got an email offering a refund to which I responded that I would rather have a shutter release that would work. I never got a response to my last email !

    Re: Nice Solid Brass Shutter Buttons

    I think Oliver has moved recently. He had been very communicative in the past and very helpful; however, of late he has been harder to reach. To his credit, he was very quick to refund my purchase, but I would have much rather have had one of his nice soft release...

    I just emailed/paid Oliver yesterday but haven't heard back yet. Odd, as I had excellent service with my purchase a few weeks ago. Hope he is well.

    Re: Nice Solid Brass Shutter Buttons

    Hi there everybody, Have moved back to the UK but buttons are still available, however they will take a bit longer now as I am having to send from here. If you have any problems with your order or anything please email me at [email protected] . Sorry I haven't been online much because of the move, it's caused me to lose track a bit of emails and such.

    Thanks, Ollie
