Thread: Cable release for Copal shutter

    Cable release for Copal shutter

    I have just acquired a couple of lenses with Copal shutters (#0 and #1). What is the correct shutter release (plain cable, not angled or otherwise fancy) for them and where can I find them?

    Most camera stores in the USA sell Gepe Pro cable releases, they are available with or without a lock. Locks available are Zeiss disc lock or a T lock. Gepe offeres cloth, PVC, spiral silver steel, spiral black steel and mesh steel covers. All but the shortest have a turning nipple, all are long throw. All will function with a Copal o, 1 or 3 shutter. Most will have too short a throw to work with a Copal Press.

    In addition all Linhof and all Kaiser cable releases will work with your shutters aslo.

    Many thanks, Bob.

    I could not find any reference by googling...

    Now I can add to my kit!

    Cheers.
