    Rolleiflex remote release

    I have a Rolleiflex 3.5E. I have recently bought a cokin A filter holder for it. However, the filter holder blocks the shutter release so that it is impossible to attach my standard cable release. Does anyone know of a work-around? Are there any adapters available?
    Thanks!

    Which filters do you need? If you simply
    use Bay II filters designed for the Rolleiflex,
    you will not have this problem. Most Bay II
    filters can be purchased inexpensively.

    Yes, that's right. However, I want to use the Cokin A system so I could use the same filters on my Rolleiflex and on my 35mm camera, as well. I didn't realize that I would run into the problem of the filter holder blocking the shutter release to such a degree.

    Cut the corner off the Cokin adapter. Presuming it's not too big a chunk it really won't matter.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    This sounds reasonable. I will give it a try. Thanks!
