Shutter release

A button that's usually found on the right-hand side of the camera that you press to take a picture. Most cameras have a two stage release. The first pressure activates the camera's autofocus and metering modes and the second fires the shutter. Some older cameras have a thread in the centre that you would screw a cable release in to. Some may have a collar around the edge that you turn to lock the shutter to prevent it being fired accidentally.
