    thin cable release = cloth cable release?

    I'm using a Reflex-Korelle 6x6 from probably the 1930s. There is a female screw component for a cable release, but it's so tight against the body of the camera that I can't manage to thread my normal cable release. The sheath and head are just too wide to get in there properly, but it looks like the threads would match up if the camera architecture were different.

    Someone told me that I need a thin cable release and that it is called a cloth cable release (because of the cloth sheath). Does anyone know about thin cable releases and will any "cloth cable release" do the trick?

    I don't know anything about your camera, but I use various length cable releases made by Hamma that are very thin and cloth covered. o to B&H and search on Hamma ccable release. here is an example. They are cheap enough that you could try one. Look at http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...goryNavigation

    Good luck,

    You might try a Gepe flexible cable release extension. These have a small head and are made for fitting in tight spaces, like a Linhof recessed lensboard.

    Yes, that Gepe thing seems pretty likely to do the trick and allow me to use a cheap 30' cable release. Thanks.
