Has anybody had any experience in using a cable release on a Zeiss Ikon.
I have got a Zeiss Ikon 520/16 with a Novar lens which has what looks like a standard cable release thread in the shutter release. But when a standard cable is connected, it is only pushing the centre of the mechanism, and accomplishing nothing. It looks like the whole barrel of the shutter release still needs to be depressed.
Was there a special cable release connection for this camera, or is something not working properly on my model.
This has turned out to be a beauty of a camera, in otherwise immaculate condition. Recently I wanted to experiment with some longer exposures with landscapes but got stumped with this little puzzle.
Look forward to any suggestions
