How to Install

Please follow the instructions below or download PDF.

Step 1.

Select which mount works best for your shutter-release button shape. Ideal fit is when the mount edges are flush (no gaps) with your shutter-release.

Step 2.

Screw the button to the mount. Ensure the threads are engaged correctly. It should be smooth when turning. Do not over-tighten the soft-release button to the mount. A slight turn after initial contact with the O-ring (black rubber circle) is enough

Step 3.

Screw the soft-release button and the mount together and test clearances around your shutter-release before final installation to ensure there are no obstructions.

Step 4.

Wipe the shutter with a microfiber or lint-free cloth to prepare for final cleaning.

Step 5.

Open alcohol prep pad. Use one corner to gently clean the shutter release button. The cleaner the surface, the stronger the bond.

Step 6.

Allow the cleaned shutter-release to dry completely (10 minutes). Do not touch, as fingertips contain oils which will weaken the bond.

Step 7.

Unscrew the soft-release button from the mount. This will help your view in centering the mount on your shutter-release.

Step 8.

Carefully peel the backing off the Lolumina button. Do not touch the adhesive. You may want to use a knife or similar thin object to carefully peel away the adhesive backing.

Step 9.

Carefully place the mount on the center of your shutter release. Be precise in locating the center of your button. Once it touches, repositioning is not possible. If you do, the adhesive will be compromised.

Step 10.

Once adhered, firmly press the button onto the shutter-release with even pressure and hold for 60 seconds.

Step 11.

Allow the button to adhere to full strength (72 hours). Next ideal would be to wait at least 24 hours before use (90% strength).

Step 12.

Screw the button to the mount. Ensure the threads are engaged correctly. It should be smooth when turning. Do not over-tighten the soft-release button to the mount. A slight turn after initial contact with the O-ring (black rubber circle) is enough.
If your shutter button rotates, then use a thin, blunt object, like a butter knife to gently press against the rubber O-ring to hold it in place while screwing the button.

  2. Philippe,

    I own the X-T1 and bought the mini (green) and fits great. I recently just ordered a mini in red that should arrive today 🙂

    • Hi Dean, as a matter of fact, either button will work on the Leica Q. Personally I like the 13mm Concave as it is the biggest and feels good. It is a matter of choice.

  7. Hi ! Which mount shall be the best for my Fuji X-T1 and mike mini ? Mount A or Mount B ?
    They both seem to fit well so…
    Which one should I choose ?
    Cheers,
    Emmanuel

    • Hi Emmanuel,

      I believe it should be the flat surface mount, which is the one without a black dart in the middle. But of course if you find it fit well, then it is good, too.

  8. Is there a video somewhere on mounting the Lolumina Soft-release Button?

    Claude March 7, 2016 at 18:52 #
  9. Hi, I have a Fuji X-Pro2, which has screw-thread in the shutter button to attach a remote or cable release. So I do not have a flat surface to mount the bottom of the button. Is there a possible solution to have just a button with screw-thread to fit in the X Pro2 shutter button without glue or sticky things?

    Marco April 15, 2016 at 07:23 #
    • Hi Marco. Our products were designed for cameras that do not have a screw hole in the shutter release.

  11. I have a fujifilm x-t10, which soft release button should I purchase? Thanks!

    Andrew August 21, 2016 at 19:47 #
    • Hi, our buttons are designed for the camera with non-threaded shutter. It can’t fit for Fujifilm x-t10.

  12. Going to be rocking the A6000 soon! What would you recommend?

    Conor October 8, 2016 at 14:16 #
    • Hi, 10mm and 13mm complete-kits work fine for it.

      Lolumina October 9, 2016 at 00:35 #
  13. My button was glued to the packaging and as a consequence no way to get it to adhere without a new adhesive substance. By shudder is Olympus EM 5 II and appears to be metal. Thank you
