Komaru launches Komaru Colors to celebrate its first anniversary

After just one year on the market, Komaru Titanium soft release is already used (and valued) by photographers all over the world! To mark this success, the Komaru brand is expanding to include an aluminum color version of the original dual-contour button.

Extra-vivid colors For this occasion Patrick Borie- Duclaud, photographer and creator of Komaru, chose anodized aluminum in order to obtain the vivid shades which cannot be achieved with titanium. Komaru Colors comes in two gloss-effect finishes:

• Komaru Colors Red
• Komaru Colors Black

The choice of aluminium 6064a

This specific alloy is particularly well-suited to anodization and is guaranteed to provide long-lasting mechanical strength while remaining very lightweight. Anodization (tinted, in the case of Komaru Colors) increases its resistance to corrosion and therefore protects it from transpiration deposited on the soft release button. Beautifully silky to the touch, the anodized aluminum means users of Komaru Colors will find the release as enjoyable as that of Komaru Titanium.

All of the advantages of the dual contour

The innovative dual contour of Komaru soft release has already won over hundreds of photographers. Both convex on the outside and concave in the centre, it makes it easier for the finger to naturally find the centre and improves stability at release, even when hurried…

The short conical thread of Komaru Colors soft release is compatible with all bodies, old or new, such as the latest Leica models.

Demanding manufacturing requirements

Like Komaru Titanium, Komaru Colors is individually machined, partly by hand, in a workshop in the Arve valley, France, a world leader in precision metal- cutting, in particular for state-of-the-art technology. It is a genuine guarantee of reliability for distributors as much as photographers
