          I also own the much more expensive and highly regarded Linhof cable release... both are roughly the same length and both are brand new. I must say, this Pentax cable release as others say is SIMPLY PERFECT and FLAWLESS. It's ultra solid and ultra smooth, providing great user feedback feel. It's smoother than the Linhof and feels better in all regards than the more expensive Linhof cable release.

          Buy this Pentax cable release right away while they are still available! Great deal!

              Comments about Pentax Cable Release 50:

              I've been using these Pentax cable releases for over 30 years and have never ever had a failure. Still have the ones I bought 30+ years ago.Unbelievably smooth. Totally consistent to use. Too bad Pentax doesn't make the 12" version anymore.Pricey perhaps, but if you want quality and can hold on to things without losing them, don't hesitate to buy this.Makes the $10 Chinese cable releases look and feel as if they should cost $1.

                    I use this cable with my 4x5 and my Mamiya TLR, I lost it while camping and had to replace it. The good thing is that was available at B&H.
                    It is very flexible and the disk lock is great.

                    Best Cable release ever

                    I use this cable release for both 35mm and 4x5 photography. The release action is super smooth and very consistent. Especially good for very cold weather photography as the cable release stays flexible and does not become rigid. I own three of these - the best I have ever used.

                    In a time exposure you use the release to hold the shutter open until you feel enough light has been exposed on the film. You can also lock the shutter open so you don't have to hold it open.
