Step 1.

Get some “Glide” brand or other very thin dental floss. The type of floss is important because you want it to be able to slide between the mount and adhesive disc. If it is too thick then this will be difficult.

Step 2.

Get a roughly 18″ long piece of dental floss and secure ends around index fingers.

Step 3.

Hold camera steady on lap in-between legs.

Step 4.

Slowly and gently floss between the adhesive disc and the bottom of the SS mounting base. Do not use too a lot of force, and double-check that the placement of the floss is the same in the image. If the adhesive is very sticky, apply a light coating of dish soap on the floss thread to ease in separation.

Step 5.

Continue to floss and wiggle the button to see if it is safe to peel and remove the button. There should be no force required to peel the mount when it is safe to remove.

Step 6.

Once the mount is removed, slowly peel the adhesive disc away at an angle of 90º or less while holding the clear part of the shutter release button. The adhesive should not leave any residue.

You have safely removed the Lolumina Soft-release Button

  4. Is it possible to order the adhesive only, have had to send camera back to factory twice and have no adhesive to reattach your release button ?

  5. I really am upset. I bought an x-t1 with your shuttle release and the first time I used it the button fell off and was lost. I think you should replace it at no charge.
