OK but then, why is it called "soft"? It shouldn't make the shutter release any softer, should it? What usefulness can it provide in real use?
I had a thread about this and after Matt King’s post I decided to try one. My opinion is currently out on these at the moment, as it certainly makes it easier to press the shutter, even by accident (nothing soft about it). But can’t yet decide if I prefer it. Time will tell.
