Up until now, soft release camera buttons were either concave or convex, depending on the manufacturer. For the first time, Komaru offers a dual contour button, convex on the outside and concave in the center. This ergonomic solution is inspired by the keys on a flute, both domed and hollowed to provide a better fit to the musician’s and now the photographer’s fingertip. In this way Komaru instinctively and immediately centers the finger, and therefore the release pressure.
Each Komaru is individually machined, partly by hand, in an aeronautical-grade engineering workshop in Toulouse, France.
