    Bob,

    I think you need to write the ad copy, as your description is far more clear than the copy on B&H!

    This item is on my list, it's a long list.

    I continue to look for a DIY Ilex cable socket repair.

    Thanks!

    But this is designed to fire a point and shoot, or other small camera, that does not have a mechanical cable release socket. It accepts a standard cable release (preferably a Kaiser, Gepe or Linhof) and when you push in on the cable release a small, round button will then press on the shutter release on the camera body.
    Fully extended the button is 2.59mm long. It is also 5.45mm in diameter. So this button is not designed to fire a view camera shutter. The largest useable diameter that it can mount to is about 4", any longer then that and there is not enough hook and loop material to grip tight enough to resist the push of the cable release and the camera's shutter release button.The hook and loop material is 3.5" long so there is a good amount of adjustment possible.

    But please, if you have a camera that can use these, buy it!

    Randy,

    Good luck, but I did write what they have up. It is copied from one of our older price lists. What I wrote here is probably too complicated for many of the people looking for one of these for their camera.
