    Most cheapo cables will do as long as they have a 2.5mm mono jack, just plug it into the sync port on the AFi back and you're good to go....

    @Yair: and this will fire the shutter in the lens too?

    Of course it will, it's a cable release so it triggers the shutter, nothing else:-)

    Interesting - That might be really useful. I'll have to try this with my Mumford Time Machine when my AFi 12 is returned.

    The Leaf shutter release plugs into the AFI II 7 back, and it works like a charm for the camera and the back.

    I am glad to have posted the question. There are thousand possibilities on the net from USD10 to >USD200 for simple cable to complex wireless system.
    Start again to shoot MF few months ago and took not a long time to re-discover that any tiny vibrations will affect the result.
    Thanks All.
