Conceptus Tongue Switch - Now for Sony Cameras!

New! Now for Sony Cameras!

[2.5mm Canon  | Sony Cameras]

The Tongue Switch is comprised of a 1/2 inch pressure-sensitive switch mechanism, a 1 inch flattened and bite-resistant stem, a 36 inch cable, and your choice of plug with a 90 degree elbow bend. It is configured so that the pressure-sensitive switch face is always oriented towards the user's tongue, regardless of the direction of insertion into the mouth, thus allowing the wire to be routed to the left or right.

The tongue movement required is most similar to that of pressing bubble gum against the back surface of the front teeth before blowing a bubble. The user will feel a "click" each time the switch is depressed, indicating that a photo has been taken. The entire switch assembly is waterproof, and since it is situated entirely within the mouth, no jaw or teeth movement is required to retain or actuate the switch while taking photographs. This allows the Tongue Switch to be used with tight fitting rear-entry helmets and ratcheting chin-cups. This feature makes it the favorite of professional freefall photographers who insist on a perfectly stable camera platform.

Unlike other manufacturers this switch is active. This means you'll be able to properly focus the camera when using the camera's shutter. With other manufacturer's adapters, holding the shutter half way down does not focus the camera while the cable is installed. 

Sony Connections Options

The direction the cable leaves your camera is often a personal preference. Most cameraflyers like their cable to go down towards their helmet. However, in cases where the connector lies at the bottom of the camera, a sideways version might be optimal.
