    LONG CABLE RELEASE?

    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").

    LONG CABLE RELEASE?

    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?

    No. The taper on the Linhof works best.
