I've inherited a vintage "No. 1 Pocket Kodak", a medium format folder from somewhere around 1930. The existing shutter release cable no longer works, as the braiding has split and the spring inside slips through the gap.
Is a modern mechanical shutter release cable likely to fit?
The shutter comes with a short mechanical cable release that screws in next to the shutter lever. It seems to work in the conventional way by just pushing a rod/pin down into the shutter mechanism. I'm afraid I can't accurately measure the thread, but the diameter of the whole screw is pretty small, about 2 or 3 mm.
Other features of the camera are still compatible with modern kit, for example the tripod mounts accept a modern tripod and it uses 120 film.
