    I've got a Pentax one and it seem to be pretty good quality. I have not had it long enough to see if I can break it, but things look promising so far.

And as cable releases go, you will generally pay a pretty high price for the Linhofs

    To add to my earlier post, the one that I purchased several years ago, turns out it is a .......... Linhof, so the linhofs seem to be leading the pack.

    I used to think I lost them - I now realize these are actually offerings to the snowbank and river gods. Without these periodic offerings, you have to put up with wind.

    I always bought the cheap ones. Sometimes even used ones for $5. They were always breaking so I picked up one made by Ebony.
    I lost it before I had a chance to shoot with it.
