    I had quite a mixture of camera equipment following closure of my studio. I had no real idea how to value what I had and couldn't face the potential horrors of Ebay. I didn't especially trust retailers to give me a price either. Fortunately I found Peter online and was able to liquidate my remaining items. I'm very happy indeed to recommend Peter's service to anyone in a similar predicament. His valuations were extremely fair but more than this, his processes are incredibly efficient and absolutely painless. Peter organises speedy collection of goods and extremely prompt payment then follows. My understanding is that Peter has been in the business for a long time and his safe hands wouldn't still be around if he couldn't deliver on his offers and promises.
    Andrew J Luck, London N20

    Having been kindly given a 1970's Leica, I was unsure the best way to achieve a sale at a fair market value. The ebay lottery wasn't appealing. I approached a couple of London camera stores a year ago who were very sniffy about dealing over the phone and by email. I gave up.
    The other day I came across Peter Walnes' website. I contacted Peter and within an hour, he had assessed the value of the camera and offered what I considered a fair price. He arranged and paid for a UPS pickup and made payment as soon as it arrived. Throughout the selling process Peter provided me with the surety and confidence that I was dealing with a professional. A completely refreshing approach to business built on mutual trust.
    Gareth Kitching, Swanage, Dorset

    Trust and confidence are essential components in any sound business. I had a Nikon D90 which I wanted to sell. When I phoned Peter, he made a very fair offer there and then. Peter also gave me good advice on packaging and getting the camera to him safely. Within hours of receipt of the camera, he had confirmed his offer and transferred the agreed sum to my bank account. I unhesitatingly recommend Peter Walnes as a dealer in secondhand photographic equipment based on this experience.  Simon Littlejohn, York

Abrahamsson softrelease


Image

Peter Walnes is the UK stockist for Tom Abrahamsson's Softrelease. It's a convex (dome-shaped) button that screws into the shutter release, using the same thread as the cable release.

It fits most cameras that have this thread including all Leica M and R, Leicaflex SL, Nikon FM, FE2, F3T, Nikkormats, Voigtlander Bessa L and T, new Zeiss Ikon, Kodak Retina Reflex, Retina IIIc and IIIC, Fuji 645 (rangefinder), Pentax (not LX) Rollei 35, Canonet G-III, QL17 and Konica Auto S3.

Users report that it doesn't work on any of these: Hasselblad, Nikon F, F2, FM2, FM2N, Nikon F3 (it could turn the meter on permanently!) Pentax LX, Yashica, Konica Autoreflex TC and Voigtlander Bessa R

It costs £24 including VAT in a choice of chrome, black, red, green, blue and purple.

We also stock the Mini Softrelease for Fuji X-system, Bessa, Leica M and most mechanical cameras. These are available in chrome, black or red.  The price is £24 including VAT.

For owners of Leica M 240, M-E, M-P 240, M 262, M-D 262 and M Monochrom, we have the M-Softrelease and Mini M-Softrelease, £24 including VAT.
