    Can someone recommend a shutter release for a Nikon FE2? I'm not sure if shutter releases for older film cameras are specific to the model, or if there are general ones you can use with any camera.

    Thanks!

    I don't have an FE2, but if the shutter button has a screw-hole in the top, you can use a standard mechanical cable release. That type is nearly universal, as opposed to electronic releases.

    The model you need is the Nikon AR-3. Get one. Or get two cheap knock-offs since they'll break.

    Yeah I use a Nikon AR-3 and it's $15 so I see no reason to use anything else.

    Terminology

    A shutter release is the button or the mechanism that actuates the shutter, in any case part of the camera.

    What you are refering to is designated as cable release.
