Ok those of a certain age may remember using one of these!
I've had a new display cabinet and was clearing out old draws, I've got no use for it now but will keep for memories sake.

thanks for sharing memories.
Used to love those. Big advantage over remotes: batteries last longer ;)

The Sony RX10 IV still uses/has a threaded cable release socket.

Hi fentiger.
I found one a couple of months ago going through a box of “junk” that came from my dad, it was for his AE1Program I think!
That reminds me Private By Design did you ever collect my dad’s AE1P from your father? Was it any good?

Cheers, Graham.

Oh the days of the AE-1P... It served me well for some 15 years to end up collecting dust :cry:

But then again, there are so many advantages in the modern DSLR's that I'm not tempted to get it into operational use soon... (despite the fact that it could use the shutter release cable(??) @fentiger showed).
Btw., it feels tiny and light compared to my 7D2... progress? :unsure:;)
