    Rollei HY6 mod2

    I found that there are so little Hy6 accessories in the market , for example, shutter release cable , I do not know which shutter release cable is suitable for HY6 mod2 since heard that 6008's cannot adpate to hy6(mod2) .

    Any photographers are using shutter release cable for hy6 ??

    Funny you should ask! I _just_ received my shutter release cable when I got my Mod2 upgraded Hy6 back a couple of days ago. I still have not had a chance to actually use it, but it is great quality.

    You can purchase from DHW directly in Braunschweig.

    easier yet there is a setting for a delayed shutter, from 1/2 sec to 30 seconds (adjustable). Very easy to use - I haven't used my shutter release cable since. BTW - depending on if you use a MFDB, but the Leaf one takes a pretty simple release (cheaper cable).

    There is a remote shutter release for the Hy6/AFi. It's more complicated than those for the 6000 series bodies and also more expensive. If I'm not mistaken its part #58270 and called Fernbedienung RC100 or Fernauslosser RC100. It's something like 170 euros from DHW. I have it and hardly use it. If you have a Leaf digital back, you can use their remote release which is much simpler and also less expensive. Last time I shot with Geoff, we both were using the shutter delay and actually now, I mostly just use the mirror up button on the grip when I want to be meticulous, but I don't notice any mirror shake so a lot of times I don't use anything.

    For reference, many of the accessories are now listed on the DHW webpage. Note that there are 7 pages here to go through and the release is on page 3
