Any interest in a custom cable release adapter for Nex 7?
May 16, 2012

I have commented recently about using a cable release adapter on my Nex 7 to circumvent some of Sony's strange decisions which don't allow use of the wireless adapter in some modes, notable auto-HDR and AEB. I recently contacted Richard Franiec who kindly replied and said that he had had some enquiries for a custom cable release adapter but not enough to warrant a project to make one at this time similar to the ones on his website.

With Richard's kind permission, I have therefore started this thread (and will send Richard a link) to ask whether any other users would be willing or interested in such an adapter if it was available.

I'd therefore ask that if anyone is interested, they could make a comment on this thread to signify interest. Please don't hijack the thread for other purposes as this is only likely to have a negative effect.

Richard (rightly in my view) hasn't said exactly how many would need to express firm interest. I imagine that, if the project proceeded, he would need to spend considerable time in design and manufacture so obviously the more of you that do show interest, the better. He will then be able to make a decision whether to proceed or not.

Thanks for looking
