    Cable release for recessed lens board

    I am using a 65mm Super angulon in a 2X3 Galvin recessed lens board. The proble m is that my shutter release cable does not fit. Are there special cables to be used for recessed lens boards? Please help.

    The usual solution are small L- or U-shaped adapters that go between the lens cable socket and the cable. Any good photo store should carry these. Ballpark for the price is about $10.

    i have tried the rotating L-shaped adapters, but have had two of them fail on me. i have had better luck with the short, flex-cable type adapters.

    Cable release for recessed lens board

    The Pro Release Wide Angle Cable Release 603007 is a highly flexible adapter that was developed to use a cable release on the 35mm 4.5 Apo Grandagon when mounted in a Technika recessed lens board. It has a list price of $11.50 and will easily solve your problem.

    Unlike other flexible extensions this one has an extremely short tip so it can bend into the board.

    I have tried the product which Bob describes above. It does indeed solve this problem. It does have limitations which won't effect most people using it. If you hook an air shutter release up to it, the air release may not have enough umph to trip the shutter. The travel of the release is enough to trip a standard copal shutter, but falls just short of enough travel for a Copal "press" shutter. As Bob mentions, it was designed to address a problem for a specific lens on a specific lens board.

    Cable release for recessed lens board

    The Pro Release Wide Angle Adapter was developed to fire any lens in a Compur or Copal shutter in any recessed board with a cable release.

    It was not designed for Press shutters (Copal or Prontor) nor was it designed for air releases as the manufacturer is the world's largest manufacturer of cable releases.

    It is not limited to a 35mm Apo Gradagon in a Techniks recessed board. That was simply the reason it was made. And that is the most extreme situation currently possible on a 45 camera.
