View Full Version : suggestions for a shutter release for a betax #4
the wollensak triple arrived the other day, and i now realize that the 1/2 dozen shutter releases that i have don't thread onto the outside of the "fitting". any suggestions what kind of release might have a throw long enough, and screw on the outside rather than the inside of the fitting?
Hi John. My Turner Triple has outside threads on the cable release socket, but it has interior threads as well. Have you tried to screw a regular tapered thread cable into it? If you're not as fortunate as I was, you can still find a vintage cable used. I don't know if anyone still manufactures them. Good luck.

Yes, as far as I know, the Betax takes a "proprietary" shutter release-in search of them myself. GOOD LUCK.
John, I have a Betax 4, and it has internal threads as well as external. I think I read that some may not have the internal threads, but I'm not sure. You may need a cable release with a long throw. Some of my cable releases do not have sufficent length when pushed to trip the shutter, but that can be adjusted on some releases. Good luck.
