    Hard to see the picture clearly, but it looks like a simple air hose and bulb arrangement.

    Alan, the 'cable release' will be a hollow tubing with a bulb on the end. Air trapped in said tubing and bulb will when the bulb is squeezed force a piston in the shutter forward and thus trip the timed sequence. This will please your onlookers to no end and folks with Nikon FM's and other similar ilk will say "Gosh, so that's where the 'B' came from"

    Carol has been using a paper clip to test it but I think I might lose some street cred if I was seen using one in the field

    I'm waiting Ole...(heh-heh )
    So YOU'RE the one!

    Carol sent me an email with a picture concerning that cable release. Wackiest thing I ever saw...

    You walk around with a bullet hole in your forehead and you are worried about credibility?

    This does not sound all that menacing to me.

    Air releases for regular cameras seem to sell on e-bay for about £1. These have rather narrow tubing but you can make an adapter with a short section of larger tubing (available from aquarium suppliers, etc.). A little while back I was in a hurry to fix up a pneumatic release and bought a cheap blood-pressure gauge plus stethoscope set, which was slight overkill but yielded four pieces of tubing of just the right size and flexibility for use with a British "Day" shutter together with the bulb from a cheap secondhand air release. I am sure you will have no trouble making something suitable.

    It's important, though, to only use the proper air in the bulb and hose.

    The Cable Release is not a normal type that threads into the release socket but rather is a bayonet that twists on into the release socket. Does that help clarify what he and I are looking for?

    I presume then, that there isn't a piston on the inside of the shutter housing by that connection and that there is a "eral" mechanical connection happening. What was it you worked out for Nathan's Compound? Any possibility to do the same here?

    Just thinking out loud and in public...

    The shutter release is a piston type (as Ilex, betax ect.), just the connection to it is different, like I mentioned above.

    Here is a picture of the cable release, that we are looking for. This one belonged to another shutter that came in for a CLA.
    Any Help!
