    Small Cable For Linhof Recessed Lens Board?

    I have a couple of the Linhof Copal 0 recessed lensboards and one of them has a nifty little flexible connector cable between the cable release connector and the lens. This is so much better than the small piece of wire that you see on other lensboards.

    Does anyone have an idea of where to source some of these small flexible connectors for these recessed lensboards?

    Thanks

    They are part of Linhof qr boards. You would have to ask them. But they won’t work with the qr boards that use the wire connection.

    If you look closely you will see differences in the qr block on the board.

    Bad answer, a service center will be cheaper and probably have it in stock. Camera and video stores are not the best place for repair parts. But they are great for accessories!

    Thanks for the info. I hadn't even thought about that. I will also check with a Linhof service center as Bob mentioned to compare the prices and availability.

    Thanks

    Thanks Bob. I will check with Precision Camera in Chicago and compare the pricing and availability and loop back here.

    I had a couple of those small extensions around, for some reason that I forget, so I used one in the recessed board, but they're impractically pricey. They do work OK, though

    He’s talking about the current small cable that is part of current Linhof boards with the current qr socket.
    I believe you might be talking about something like the Gepe WA Cable Release, a totally different thing.

    Or am I wrong?
