Good idea but absurd price, build your own for less than $10

Its a good idea, and I've done the same thing as I wanted a way to use the bulb mode for exposures longer than 30 seconds, which only can be done in bulb mode and with a locking cable release

Luckily, all it takes its a couple pieces of aluminum which you can order for a few dollars of plenty of internet sites.

Its a metal that is also easy enough to drill/cut yourself so just make a little bracket and get a mechanical cable release.

Drill a small hole in the top of your bracket and JB Weld a threaded nut, I forget what size I used, to thread the cable release into, as you might strip the hole if you just drilled the aluminum and used it a lot and your in business.

Not quite as slick looking, but realistically how often are you going to such a thing with the RX100 ?

I made it for a trip to the beach so I could take some long exposures of the water,  Worked great, and the camera itself delivers some impressive results for something that fits into a pocket
