Locking/Latching Shutter Release Cable

What shutter release cables or RCs have a locking function for Bulb-mode shooting. So it's one press to start, and another press to end.

I've used this one with no problems... press for on - slide to lock. I've bought from them a couple times with no problems.

Thanks, I've just ordered from DealExtreme a locking cable to add to the collection + a set of macro extension tubes + 6 microfibre lens cleaning cloths. Total cost inc. free international airmail: $21.33 AUD. That certainly won't break the bank.

Pity most of their lens accessory diameters appear to start from 52mm, rather than 49mm, although I've already got 49-52 & 49-58 step-up rings.

I can order this stuff from HK off Ebay, but the cost of postage typically boosts the cost significantly.

Dan.

Will the lens autofocus with this device?

Yeah, it will AF on half-press and shoot on full-press, just like the on camera shutter release button.
