Linhof 002429 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 002429 is a 13.5" (35 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
Broad, well-contoured plunger design
Classic T-lock mechanism

Linhof 002429 reviews

Cable Release with T-Lock - 13.5" is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cable In the past I have used cheaper cable releases. Everyone of them would end up breaking in a few months from heavy use. I cannot tell you how frustrating it is when a cable release falls apart on your lens and you in up missing the shot. I would carry 4-5 extra releases as a spare to replace the ones that would break. Linhof cable release are smooth to operate. You can feel the quality. After going through dozens of cheaper release I end up wasting a lot time and costing me more in the long run. Now I only use Linhof cable releases for all of my large format lens. I've had one for 15 years and never had a problem. The only time I've ever need to replace a Linhof cable release is when I loose one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works, but.... The top button broke off within first 3 minutes of it being with me, its extremely fragile. The contraption still works without the top button as I can press the cable from top and screw it tight for holding in bulb mode, but I would have been happier if the top would be of reasonable quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cable release As one might expect from Linhof, they have produced an excellent cable release. I bought it because I needed it for a Linhof Technika grip, for which it was expressly made, but I was please to discover that it works with a Prontor Press shutter. None of my many other cable releases will do so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cable Release on the Market Linhof only makes quality stuff, and even in something simple and relatively inexpensive, the quality is obvious. I've used lots of other releases to varying degrees of success, and nothing compares to this one. It is worth the money, because it will last. Excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Linhof - What more do you want? I believe you could live to be a hundred years old...TWICE...and never wear this out. I'm not a fan of the T-Lock after using it and will go back to the disc lock but that is no fault of this cable. This is quality craftsmanship exactly as you would expect from Linhof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shudder the thought to lose one? I use it with medium format film equipment. It is great because of its build quality, its engineering and what feels like appreciation for the user having befriended it. I would shudder to lose one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique, but well made It snaps right into the quicklock socket, and is ready go! A little pricey for a cable release, but very well made. I wish the cable lock had a quick release though...., oh well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best There isn't a finer cable release that I've ever come across. You can go cheap, or you can go forever.
