Linhof 002434 overview

  • 1Description

The Linhof cable releases are ridiculously well made and built to last-one often encounters perfectly operational Linhof releases upon the secondhand market, manufactured more than half a century ago and with many thousands of exposures under their belt.  They have a particularly long, strong throw.  In fact, they are amongst a very short list of cable releases which can trigger Copal Press shutters(which release and cock again all in one action, requiring more force) with crisp reliability.

The 002434 is a 30" (76 cm) cable release that helps prevent camera shake for super telephoto shots, macrophotography and bulb exposures.  Cable releases are also quite handy for taking pictures of difficult-to-approach subjects as well as minimizing vibrations with closeup and lengthy timed exposures.

Rotating nipple
Durable coated finish resistant to moisture & dust

Linhof 002434 reviews

Heavy Duty Cable Release with T-Lock - 30" is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible, Lengthy, Simple, Quality There is very little to choose from with these old mechanical cable releases. Fortunately Linhof continues to make these. My requirements for a release are that it be simple, the T-lock simplifies the release and makes it less error prone to lock in the plunged position (than the center lock configuration). In addition it needs to be lengthy to reduce vibration, the cable is wound around the tripod and when plunged will not transmit vibration from my hand. A short release will pull the camera or transmit vibration causing a loss in image quality. A 20 very flexible release will work okay but the added length of this release is nice for larger cameras and tripods. The quality is outstanding, I would plan on having this release for a lifetime or more. The price is high, but the feel and quality is definitely there, and as a one-time purchase, for a lifetime of use, it then becomes more acceptable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Linhof of shutter release cables. I use this for slow shutter speeds and small apertures. Works great because it has no kinks, the thumb rest has unscrewed itself and gotten lost, and the steel rod inside moves smoothly thru its casing. Does it work better than one costing one quarter of the price of one of these? Way. It's the Linhof of shutter release cables.
