Meaning and definition of cable release :


A thin cable encased in a flexible rubber or metal tube, used to release the shutter when the camera is not being hand held. Newer cameras may not have a mechanical cable release socket, instead they have a pair of electrical contacts which trigger the shutter when connected. For these cameras, the cable release comprises a length of electrical flex with a push button at one end and a connector that fits into a socket on the camera at the other. Pressing the plunger releases the shutter without touching (and possibly moving) the camera.
