Re: [Rollei] ROLLEI TLR SHUTTER RELEASE.



Thanks,  I'm sure this information will help others.
Do you think it is a safe bet since my camera doesn't do it all the time,
that everything is still O.K. and getting hold of an approved rollei cable
release or short plunger release will correct by problems.
