    I had a ton of cable releases. I used to sell camera gear on Ebay. I liked to buy someones's whole kit and then part it out so I collected quite a few cable releases. I kept the best ones and sometimes included a cheap cable release with a camera or lens auction. I also collected a ton of 4x5 film holders. I sold quite a few to Craigslist buyers for $5 each or 6 for $25.

    The funny thing about Craigslist is that I have sold quite a few things through Craigslist but I have never listed anything on there. I'd just run across people looking for stuff I had.

    I was once blessed by living with a woman who "collected" pens and pencils. I eventually had to move out because there wasn't any room left -- FOR ME!!!

    I use the Gebr Shreck releases as well - I think they make the Gepe's

    But the best long throw releases I've found have been old Prontors from eBay - the kind that have a couple of "wings" under the release button. They fire everything up to and including my Luc shutter.

    Yeah, I also heard that Gebr Shreck made the Gepe cable releases.

    I once compared my Prontors to my Gepes and the Prontors are indeed longer in "throw" length than my Gepes. Both fire my old Ilex shutters with no problem. I don't have a Luc shutter though.

    I've had a few (mostly "press type" - ie self cocking) shutters that the Gepe/Schreck wouldn't fire. But the Prontor does the trick for everything.

    Are there any good pneumatic ones that will run out 6-10+ feet and still have enough plunger depth to trigger old shutters?

    There are pneumatic releases around. I have one here somewhere but haven't checked if it's long enough. Nice thing is that you can trigger them from quite a distance. If I can find mine I'll check the throw.

    IIRC, Degroffs are pneumatic
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    I just bought a Schrek. I hope it will fire my Kown Graphic 360mm f9 as that is my only lens
