Thank you for asking.

Unfortunately, the hot shoe based cable release adapter for original DP series is not compatible with Merrill counterparts. The distance between the anchor point (hot shoe) and shutter button is different. In fact, this much longer distance is the main concern in implementation of similar to original design concept of the adapter. I'm working on alternative solutions as we speak.

Kind regards,


Can you just make permanent extension to your grip and use floating button like on some old cameras where you screw mechanical release cable so when  cable off you just use that button as a shutter release. One other idea i had was to use nearest strap eyelet.
