    I use one for my timerless bodies like the K1000, original Asahi Pentax and Mamiya RZ67 Pro II.

    Good morning;

    The one Les has is even easier to see when it is about to reach the shutter release point.

    And, as others have observed, the scampering of the photographer to get into the picture does guarantee that the smiles in the photograph will be natural.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    This looks like one of the Japanese self-timers which were a popular accessory in the 1950s and 60s.

    That's because mine is "The Most Advanced Self Timer in Photographic History" . . .

    It's when I see things like this that I mourn the replacement of mechanical engineering by digital engineering as the predominent form of design and maufacturing. These sorts of ingenious little devices were just wonderful to behold.

    I'll get in line to buy it, Katie, should you change your mind...

    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."

    Delay timer, not exposure. and with the Hasselblad you may need an angled release extension thingy or a flexible. Some of the timers cant be installed because of interference with the lens.
    Some might say I have a bad attitude! Too bad.
