Finding cable release for Horseman Digiflex II

I know that Digiflex II has been discontinued for over a year, but I've been using it alot due to the wide angle lenses. I do Architectural photography, and my order for the cable release never got to me on time, until it was discontinued. I also heard the possibility of using Nikon cable release, but not sure. All help are apreciated. Thanks

I have a digiflex II as well. I use use the remote cable release from my Fuji GX680 camera on it and works fine. They use the same cable plug.

    I was lucky enough to get a used Digiflex with the cable release but I have had to make some custom cables for a timelapse setup. The connector is a Hirose RP6 Series 8-pin circular molded connector- they can be ordered with pigtails for around $20 bucks. Cant recall the pins that trigger the camera offhand but its pretty easy to figure out (or just call horseman). You can take these RP6 connectors and splice them into any intervalometer or cable release you want to use.

I want to buy a polaroid polavision land camera that takes small cass. I was wondering how difficult it is to find cass. tapes and to get them put on dvd??? I also was wondering if the videos give you that...


Polavision is a totally dead instant movie system which was discontinued over thirty years ago. If you can still find any original unused film cassettes they will very likely be useless even if they have been kept refrigerated for all of that time. Whether the camera will work reliably on your hard to get film will also be highly questionable.

Unless boxed and in absolutely mint condition, complete with all original accessories, the camera is utterly worthless. If it is in factory fresh condition then it's still likely to be near-worthless unless collectors are competing to buy it.

As you plan to convert any film you shoot to a digital format anyway, you'll be far better off using a modern digital video camera and then using software to create the old amateur home movie look that you want.

Hello : I've recently purchased a new Canon EOS 550D camera and already I have a problem. How does one convert the movie files (.mov to send on the Internet ? Thank you and kind regards.


You can try this freeware software. I'm usually very careful about malware and this software seems to be good.

PS! Follow installations CAREFULLY and uncheck any box that hints about installing other software! You can install this converter clean or with some additional malware if you are not careful

I have a Minolta x700 that has not been used in years. I replaced the batteries and the lights all work; however, the film advance lever will not work nor will the shutter release. I see that two years...


Unused cameras tend to seize up: unless they're used regularly the internal lubricant films dry out and gum up and the fault you describe is typical of this.

As a professional repair, it's totally uneconomical and due to the scarcity of spare parts it's highly unlikely that you'll find any professional who will touch your camera as things may break during disassembly.

All you can do is to try and strip and repair this yourself. A full stripdown will be unrealistic, but with a bit of care and caution it's often possible to free up enough of the camera to get things moving again. I don't know of any free repair manuals, but you won't go far wrong by carefully removing the baseplate (watch out for the soldered wires to any electrical contacts) and trying a bit of manipulation. Use something clean and lint free to clean off gummed up grease (not cotton buds), and replace with a smear of light grease. Don't go anywhere near a WD40 can and don't mistake vaseline (petroleum jelly) for grease!

Removing the camera top plate is real "here be dragons" territory. To do so needs far more care and often special tools and the electronics underneath the top plate have to be carefully moved to access the mechanical parts. Doing so often irreparably damages them.

Batteries V400PX


V400PX was a 1.35v mercuric oxide battery and due to concerns over toxicity all batteries using mercury were discontinued over ten years ago.

You have a number of options:-

  1. Use a silver oxide equivalent, such as S400PX at 1.55v. The higher voltage may cause an incorrect light meter reading but it may be possible to compensate for by adjusting the camera settings (you haven't said which model: not all can compensate).
  2. Use a zinc air cell, the Weincell MRB400. These have the correct voltage but a short lifespan.
  3. Use a voltage reducing adapter and a suitable silver oxide cell. It's not cheap but is a one-off purchase and solves the problems of the first two options. It's also cheaper than frequently replacing Weincells. The link is for a company which I regularly use and they provide an excellent service. Note that if you're in the USA/Canada you can get the same item cheaper from CrisCam.
I hope that I've answered your question satisfactorily; if so please let me know by taking a moment to rate my answer. If my answer does not yet meet your needs then please add a comment instead to explain why and I'll offer further assistance.

Cable releases will not operate shutter of Pentax A3


Take one of the cable releases and press the thumb pad and extend the release probe. Lock the release in the fully extended position. Try inserting the probe into the shutter release hole and see if it works. If not then try using a thick needle from the head end and see if the release actually works on the camera. If it does then measure the depth that the needle goes to in order to work the shutter and compare to the exposed length of the release cable. You may find that it is not long enough although I would have thought unlikely.

Shuter release button stuck


Caused by build up of dirt inside shutter release button :drip small amount of cleaning solvent like methilated spirits , isopropanol or benzine between the button and external wall using tweezers and then lift the button up and down by inserting tweezers into the inner cable release  thread .
If this does not work you will need to remove the front cover and clean more fully the release mechanism on the inside of the fron cover. 4 retaining screws are under the leather covering in the front ( 2 on top and two on the bottom )
