I think "standard for 35mm cameras" is way too strong a phrase. My film Nikons
(all three of them) used a completely different system in which the cable
release terminated in a female-threaded cap that fit over the shutter button
and engaged a male-threaded collar welded to the body. The pin of the cable
release pushed on the surface of the shutter button, just as the shooter's
finger would have if the cable realease hadn't been there. And the threading
I'd forgotten about that system. There certainly isn't a standard for digital cameras!
