Hi Andrei

The standard Contax cable switch (comes in 10cm, 30cm and 100cm lengths) all work with the 167MT.
This is a black control strip with a button and lock-up (for time exposures).

I think this is true for the 167MT, Aria, ST,RTSIII, and possibly the others.

The RTSIII and the S2(b) take a traditional push-plug type cheapy mechanical plunger. You're advised not to try and hook a non-Contax cable switch to your 167MT - it won't fit and it might damage it.

I've no idea about the 137MA/Q/159 - they came before my time. It might be better to try posting this request in the Accessories forum?

Best wishes,
