Universal Digital Shutter Release Cable

Posted on September 17, 2014 by Sean MacDonald
I was super excited when I first found this product, and even more so when I got the first one in and everything worked as it claimed.

To be honest, I think this idea is a no-brainer, and I don’t know why, well…I do, Canon and Nikon have not adopted this system. This just absolutely makes the most sense out of any other product I have in the store.

It’s a digital shutter release cable with interchangeable ends. That’s it, plain and simple. For some of you, this may not seem like a big deal, but for a camera store owner who owns more than one type of camera this is a product that has been long awaited for. Let me explain.

Canon has two different shutter release cable ends. There is one for the rebel line and the 60D, and then they have another completely different connector for the 30D, 40D, 50D, 7D, 6D, 5DI, 5DII, 5DIII and so on. So if you had bought a Canon brand shutter release cable for your rebel or 60D and you upgrade your camera, you have to buy a new shutter release cable. On top of that, Canon does not make a digital shutter release cable for the rebel and 60D type connector. You can only buy a manual one. If you want to do time lapse photos, or any of the other cool features of the digital cables, you had to buy a third party brand. And there is no adapter I have found or product that will work with both. Until now.

I have found a shutter release cable that comes with different interchangeable ends! Not only does it come with the connectors for both the rebel line and the 7D, 6D, and 5D cameras, it also works with ALL NIKON, SONY, OLYMPUS and MINOLTA! Each digital shutter release cable comes with eight different connectors as seen below.

Doesn’t this just make sense? You buy one digital shutter release cable, and you can use it with almost anything. I personally think this should be the way it should have been from day one. But I guess you don’t sell as many if people have to re-buy them. I’m not too worried about it though. I would rather have a product that makes sense and a happy customer than have a frustrated customer that bought two different cables from me.

*I do have to mention that these shutter release cables are third party. They are not Canon or Nikon. So take that as it may be. I have not had a problem with them yet.
