Hello. As mentioned in an earlier thread, I have a metal cable-thing that was in the bag with my Minolta 7000 Maxxum when I got it used. I thought it was a cable to trip the shutter with the camera on a tripod, but I can find no way to attach it to the camera, and the instrument does not appear in the manual. It is flexible, and when you press on one end, a small metal tip comes out the other. Here are two pictures of it. Can anyone tell me what this is? Thanks.
