    Shutter Release for Nikon

    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!

    Shutter Release for Nikon

    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.
