    Comments about General Brand Vinyl Cable Release with Center Lock - 60":

    I have bought 2 of these in the last years and it does the job. It's not made to the same quality standards as Gepe cable releases, but they don't make a 5' release. If you treat it with care it will hold up, that is not bend it too much. The other little annoyance is that the thumb button on top of the plunger can pop off. If it happens too much it gets loose and you'll have a hard time keeping it on. I use this every day so YMMV.
    I should add that it beats an air release any day except for the old DeGroffs which are no longer manufactured.

    If you come to the point where you need to read the review of a 60" cable release, let me save you some time. This cable will do just fine. It's got a nice rubberized coating and reacts as expected.

      Great accessory for my 4x5 photography. Long enough to be in front for self portraits if needed.

          The extra-long pin works perfectly with my Chinese pin hole camera.

              I pick this for self portrait.
              The manufacture is better than I expected.
              Really nice.
              Recomend!

                Comments about General Brand Vinyl Cable Release with Center Lock - 60":

                I got this for a self-portrait assignment I had in my Black and White Photo class. It came in handy when I was trying to take pictures that were more than an arms length away from my camera. In my mind 60"(or 5') seemed a lot longer than in real life, but it definitely gave me some room to play around with different self-portrait ideas. The cable release was pretty self explanatory in terms of how it went on my camera etc. It only took a few minutes of messing around with it and my old school SLR to getting working nicely.

                The length is great and its very durable. It's good in the rain if you absolutely have to use it also!

                  Comments about General Brand Vinyl Cable Release with Center Lock - 60":

                  I use the 60" Vinyl Cable Release with Center Lock with my Minolta x-370 SLR camera. It works wonders for when I take long exposures. I love how long it is because I can take pictures of myself without having my hand behind the camera. I also love how it locks and I can leave the shutter open for as long as I want and not have to worry about my hand cramping up from holding the release down. I LOVE IT!!!
