I've been using remote releases of various kinds for at least forty
years. It's true the pneumatic ones introduced a slight delay, but
then you only used those when that delay didn't matter. None of them
ever introduced more mechanical shake. Which was hardly surprising
since what they were designed to do was to reduce camera shake. Of
course you could be stupid and clumsy with the cable remotes and yank
the camera about. The instruction leaflet explained how to avoid doing
that for those who needed the explanation. And electronic remote
releases have been around for decades now.
