This is really a neat accessory for studio work when you are not able to have an assistant.  I used one of these foot operated switches when I took my award winning photo series of my hands called "Opportunity".  I set my camera up on a stand pointing down towards my hands and stepped on the release when I had my hands in the right position. I don't know of any other cameras that have an accessory like this and for me it was indispensable.  I can imagine set ups where you needed your hands to hold objects or light modifiers in position and where this would literally give you an extra hand. 

I don't really know how many of these were made, but I've got one in my personal kit and this spare one and have only seen a few others for sale in all these years.
