LONG CABLE RELEASE?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
I have done a significant amount of research and I can't find anyone who makes or sells extra long cable release cords... I was wondering if anyone knew how or where I can aquire one. I know they exist. Something longer than 5 feet. Cindy Sherman would know. Thanks a lot.

Hama i germany is where I got mine. He is about 5 meters long, but of course longer then 10 feet. Do a search under Hama.de you should find it somewhere. Hope they still produce them.

hi barney: i am not sure if mine is a kaiser, but i found a 30 foot air cable release that might be one of contracted out to a company to become a store-brand. it works great, and even has a long enough "throw" to open/close a wollensak studio shutter. i got mine at sbi sales / wb hunt photo video http://www.wbhunt.com/ good luck!

Barney, Hama makes a 30 foot air release. I got mine at B&H about a year ago.

B&H sells several different models, but they're hard to find on the site:
bhphoto.com > Photo > 35mm body/lens accessories > Remote controls (wired)
(yes, a bulb release is a "wired remote control"; I suppose a baseball thrown at the camera constitutes a "wireless")
They list a 10 footer under the Hakuba brand, 20 and 30 footers under the Hama brand, and 16 and 30 footers under the Kaiser brand (I stopped at "K").

Does anyone know if the Kaiser, Hamma or Hakuba types will fit a quick release socket and work properly on a Linhof once the 'nose cone' is installed?
-- Bill Lester (email@example.com), March 14, 2002.
No. The taper on the Linhof works best.

Hey there ball hair, why don't you check your underpants I'm sure you could find some crusty ass lint that is longer than 5 feet and use that for a cable cord and while you're at it, check for treehorn's pencil...Animal Rights!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shame (oner) on you and your moms.
