Someone recommend me a good cable release, which does not cost much, compatible with a Beaulieu 4008 ZM II? For single frame and release button. The original ones can not seem to find them.
Beaulieu.de also seems to don't have the original.
Thank you.  :)

The picture shown on the beaulieu.de site looks to me just like a regular cable release with a conical thread.

I have a few of the original Beaulieu cable releases that are straight thread and extremely sturdy.

Contact me off the board if you're interested.

Oh, I saw this post too late. I already took the original cable release, but I'm sure you would help me very well, Jean-Louis!
What a pity!
I am Luigi C., from Italy! :)
However I meant just that: the cable sold in the shop above it's only a compatible cable, not the original. I was looking for the original, which now I found.
Thanks also to everyone for the answers. :)
 
P.S. Jean-Louis, you have, perhaps, an original Beaulieu case for 4008 ZM II, the bag in the little version? The "non-rigid" version.

I had taken a good release cable, not original but compatible, brand Gitzo, but after repeated use it literally broken in my hand!
So: what is a good cable release compatible with Beaulieu 4008 ZM II? What features should it get? Someone know good and compatible model on the web? I can use those I have for Bolex H8 or for Krasnogorsk 3, in order to save money? :)
Even if they don't have the comfortable curved, no problem.
Thank you!
 
@ Jean-Louis: we are far away, but if I not find one good or the ones thate I have are not compatible I can also make the intercontinental shipping charges.

Who knows if this model, with this type of thread, is compatible with Beaulieu 4008 ZM II (for single shot and contiunuos shot)?
Thank you.
