    Hi, I have just taken the plunge and bought a Sinar auto copal shutter:tongue: but it doesn't come with the cable release. shutter to back cable or sync cable. Any ideas where the best place to get preferably used ones please? and preferably out of your surplus boxes:wink:

    Cheers Dave in UK

    You will need a special cable for this one.
    Try:
    www.photal.nl , or send them an email: info@photal.nl

    They speak english and are the sales-rep's for Sinar in Holland.

    These things often show up on the *bay. Try checking the german *bay, where they show up almost every week.
    You definitely do need the shutter release cable and if you will shoot any flash, the sync cable. The shutter to back cable is nice but not neccessary for the shutter to work. (I have one that I will not sell, but what is worse, I cannot find it at the moment, as I forgot when I last used it. :smile: )

    My browser crashed when trying to load the page with the Sinar parts...
    Again if and when you find out the price for new parts, the going rate for used ones are at a maximum £50 or so. (Which in my mind is ridiculous too.)
