"Double Cable release?"


East Haven, US
          

Does anyone know what Double cable release I need for the F-100 and the PB-6 Bellows Unit? I know I need the PK-13 between the F-100 and the bellows but there are so many remote releases I have no Idea which one I need.
Thanks
Paul

Paul, hope this helps, I have never used the PB-6; however, I checked out information regarding it in my F5 Magic Lantern Guide.

“If you wish to have the lens stop down automatically, you will have to use an AR-10 double cable release connected via an MC-25 adapter cable.”
(Direct quote from Magic Lantern Guide, for the Nikon F5.)

Yes, you do need an extension ring like the Pk-12 or PK-13 when the PB-6 is used with the F5, F100 or D1.
As Doug mentioned it, the cable for the F5 is the AR-10, via a M-25 adapter cable.
In fact, the AR-10 (2670 NAS) can be used with the F5, D1, F100 and N90s.

Thanks Guys! I am so used to doing this Macro stuff with antiquated Leica equipment that going to a more modern form of bellows from a different manufacturer can be somewhat frustrating.
Thanks again
