Opera-O Soft Release, Red, Long Post
Please note, this "long post" style soft release is designed to fit all film M cameras, the Leica M10, M9 and M8. It will not fit the Leica M-E, M (Typ 262), M/M-P (Typ 240), M Monochrom, or M Monochrom (Typ 246).
The Opera-O Soft Release is made from solid brass, because it does not bind in threads and does not break easily – unlike some metals – eliminating the possibility of our soft releases jamming or snapping off in the shutter button. A rubberized o-ring ensures a secure fit.
The Opera-O Soft Release is manufactured to very high tolerances using computer-controlled CNC machining. Also, our soft releases are individually boxed after painting, keeping them in pristine condition until they reach you.
First, the profile of the Opera-O Soft Release has been carefully designed to release the shutter button gently and smoothly as well as for comfort. The height of a domed convex profile and its curvature or the curve of a concave shape are crucial for the soft release to work correctly and minimize camera shake.
Secondly, soft releases from some other companies work loose because they have angled or knurled edges that catch on bags, clothing, and anything else. Opera-O Soft Release is perfectly smooth and won't catch on anything. This, in combination with their accurate computer controlled- thread cutting, means that Opera-O Soft Release will stay on your camera
