    Technical Camera Self Timer

    Hi All,
    Has anyone found a self timer shutter release (that is available) for technical camera lenses/shutters? I don't want an air-bulb cable release.

    These items seem as rare as hen's teeth.
    Thanks in advance,
    Bob

    Thanks. That's what I'm thinking of. The Pentax one looks good, but the Kalmar looks a bit tinny/cheap...

    I think you're right about becoming harder to find...

    Thanks again,
    Bob

    Re: Technical Camera Self Timer

    Hahaha, sorry that was funny!

    Here's another one though, Vintage Rolex Paillard Mechanical Shutter Release Self Timer Swiss Made | eBay

    btw, I have no connection to either of those auctions, just trying to help you find what you're looking for....

    Thanks! Don't know how you find these, but very helpful and appreciated. I'll see how it goes. Any others you find would also be great.
    Best,
