The team at Custom SLR (one of my awesome sponsors) is starting a kickstarter campaign for their new “ProDot” – a tactile shutter release button for cameras. When they first told me about it, I thought it would be a great solution for street photographers out there using DSLR’s to get more tactile response when shooting on the streets.
I know many street photographers who use a similar button for their Leica’s and Fuji cameras, which they feel makes it easier to hit the shutter button.
If you are a DSLR user and interested in the ProDot, it will be only $15 USD to receive a version in Black, Red, and Clear. In addition, you will also gain contributor status and be listed on the CustomSLR website. Shipping to the states is free, $3 USD shipping anywhere outside the states. Also they are currently thinking about making a screw-in version, so if you are interested in that please leave a comment below.
