    Hi Guys.
    I purchased a nice clean Yashicamat camera at the Frome Wessex camera
    fair this weekend. Is there anyone out there who can tell me where I might be able to get the little threaded bush which will enable the use of a cable release.

    Thanks Norman

    Search for 'Leica nipple'. I believe that they are somewhat common on the used market, and you may even be able to get them new...

    I believe they are the same as the ones for the early Nikon F cameras, and should be available at larger (like B & H) and many older Mom and Pop camera stores.

    The Yashica 635 uses the same thing too, just incase you end up with one of those.
