Cable release to T-70

Discussion in 'Canon FD' started by patrik_gadler, Jul 18, 1998.

  1. Is it possible to attach a cable release to a T-70? If so, is it a Canon original part, or does any other manufactor have such (Hama etc)?


    Kind Regards,

  2. The T70 and T90 bodies use a "T3" connector for remote control..<P>
    Canon used to market a "Cable Release Adapter T3" which would connect an ordinary mechanical cable release to a 2-stage T3 connector. I haven't seen them advertised in some time now.... But the "Remote Switch RS60-T3", "Extenson Cable 1000-T3", and "Wireless Remote LC-3" are still available new (they are also used on the newer EOS bodies).<B>
    I have never seen any 3rd party "T3" devices.<P>
  3. In addition to Dave's thorough posting: I tried to find a source for the little connectors used in the (absurdly expensive) 60T3 cable
    releases, without success. If anyone has one of these cables and
    could look for a manufacturer name, I will try again to come up with
    a supplier. From there, building a release cable to suit one's needs
    would be fairly trivial.
