            Comments about Pentax Cable Release 50:

            This cable release is one of the few that are ever best designed and made. Nowadays with everything going digital and electronic, most "photographers" only know to press buttons on the camera, and manufacturers have forgot how to make cable release. I bought one Gepe cable release with a very small grip, it keeps slipping through my fingers. Other cable releases have "cable" that are so stiff, they are more like twigs of a mapple tree, and can not carry out the function of a cable release.
            This is one of the great stuff that came about in the time of true photography and still lives.

                  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!

                      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.

                            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.
