The cable release fitting on ALPA lenses appears to be threaded specially for the ALPA shutter release. Unlike most cameras or shutters, it has straight threads. Cable releases I've seen have tapered threads, as do all cameras I'm familiar with.
I'd like to replace the ALPA fitting with one that has the normal tapered thread so I get a better connection with my Kapture Group One Shot cable. Has anyone done this? Do you know of a source for the "normal" tapered fitting?
