    How to use this cable release bracket?

    Hello all,

    Here is a odd (to me) looking cable release bracket that I am not familiar with...
    Could someone please describe exactly how this thing works?

    Thanks in advance...

    It can't be?
    It is for a 90mm angulon on a recessed Linhof board.

    ^^ What he said, it's proprietary to Linhof.
    The silver button should be spring loaded. It locks the CR into the socket.

    That is what I figured, but there is no spring in it, so apparently it isn't working properly!

    You need a special nipple thingy to use with an ordinary tapered cable release - try eBay?

    The nipple is 041066 Nippon Photoclinic has them. But you will need more then that. The Cable Release QS is incomplete.

    You have an older lens in an old Compur shutter.

    When your lens and shutter was made it required a Linhof 001015 lensboard. But your lens was not supplied originally on this board. If it had been the PC contact would face forward rather then up. When you buy a Linhof recessed lens board new that right angle PC adapter is supplied with the board. If your lens was in a Copal shutter then it would have needed a Linhof 001016 recessed board.

    After Prontor stopped making shutters Linhof changed the 001015 board to accept either a Compur or a Copal shutter. And now they only make the 001015 as the Comfort board for Copal only.

    At some time someone mounted your lens into the wrong board and when that happens the Cable Release QS will not line-up with the shutter and when you rotate the lens so it does the side of the shutter rubs against the recess in the board. So you need the lens to be re-mounted to the correct board, if you can find one, or for service to try to modify the QS to line up on your shutter. You will also need the correct PC contact for the recessed board which service does have if you want to be able to attach a synch cord properly to the shutter.
