  2. Re: Modern Compur 0 shutter - maximum aperture opening adjustment ?

    Of course, I could just move the aperture ring from the old shutter ! Doh....
  3. Re: Modern Compur 0 shutter - maximum aperture opening adjustment ?

    Peter, that is a perfect answer and very helpful. I will probably just remove the rivet for maximum aperture and not worry about minimum.

    Best regards

    Dave
  4. Re: Modern Compur 0 shutter - maximum aperture opening adjustment ?

    Here you go:

    I removed the 3 screws that release the aperture control ring. There is a small lug underneath that controls how far the aperture will open. It moved easily to open...

  6. Re: 8x10'' 末 Arca Swiss F-Line Metric vs. Lotus View

    I had an Arca 10x8 'Oschwald' and it actually quite light with an amount of plastic parts. Can be packed reasonably small on a 15cm rail laid flat in a lowepro bag. Assembly on to the tripod is...
  7. Re: Review: Chinese lens boards and adapters - eBay sold by JinFinance - Tyger RJ bra

    I have quite a few bits and pieces from them and have always been very pleased with the value and quality.
  8. Re: Modern Compur 0 shutter - maximum aperture opening adjustment ?

    Prompted by Ian I have made an error - having just checked- quite right it was a synchro-compur with chrome ring.

    It is identical to the modern compur except for the synch socket which is a...

    Hi there, I have re-celled a modern compur 0 shutter (150mm symmar F5.6) with a 203mm Ektar from an slightly older and u/s compur 0. Moved aperture scale OK by leaving off the flash sync from the new...

    Re: Scotland, early May

    Hi there, May will still have snowy peaks if the last few years are typical. You can still get snow to low levels in May - I did when I walked the West Highland Way in 2011. Trees at low levels will...

    Thanks, fantastic - exactly what I was looking for.
  13. Re: Marrutt CP450 - How to do a test strip ?

    The Marrutt has the light source on the bottom and a lid that locks down on to the back of the paper. To do the usual with a sheet of card would mean lifting up the neg and paper which are laid flat...

  15. Re: 210mm Prontor Professional aperture scale needed

    Thanks Bob, 01S with 0 conversion (from a 90mm f5.6 SA) and its actually a 203mm Ektar but 210mm would be close enough and probably stand a chance of finding !
  16. 210mm Prontor Professional aperture scale needed

    Anyone help me with an image of aperture scales for prontor professional shutter and a 210mm lens ? Had to re-shutter a lens.

    Many thanks

  17. Re: Adox CHS 25 in 8x10 - pyrocat HD development

    Thanks Sandy, I will try that too. At the end of the day I know I have to find my own solution but I really appreciate the pointers as to what works.
  18. Re: Adox CHS 25 in 8x10 - pyrocat HD development

    Thanks Jim, I am without a darkroom at the moment but your suggestion sounds like a good one when we move permanently. I will try the compensating protocol you suggest, I can see that would work well...

  23. Re: 240mm & 355mm lens cells in same '3' shutter - aperture scale ?

    Thanks all, I think I need to follow DrTang advice and actually measure the light transmission. I can do this quite easily as I have a 360mm APO Artar in a copal shutter that I can preset apertures...

  25. 240mm & 355mm lens cells in same '3' shutter - aperture scale ?

    My googling skills cant be up to much as I thought I would find the answer easily. I want to move a 355 G Claron out of a barrel into a spare prontor 3 shutter that came from a 240mm symmar. The...
  26. Re: Schneider 240mm F5.6/420 F12 in a prontor professional 3 ?

    Thanks Bob for the information. I have had smaller prontor pro shutters with lenses in the past so know of their 'quirks'. I was attracted by the '3' mainly for the shutter as I need to house a 355mm...
  27. Re: Schneider 240mm F5.6/420 F12 in a prontor professional 3 ?

    Ahh, thanks, that makes sense. Many thanks for the quick replies. Some measuring will confirm which.
  28. Schneider 240mm F5.6/420 F12 in a prontor professional 3 ?

    I picked up on ebay a Schneider convertible 240mm F5.6 lens (serial 83132**) in a prontor professional 3 shutter. Thinking it was like the nikkor 240mm or rodenstock 240mm 10x8 lenses I thought...

  33. Re: 210mm G-Claron Cells - confused or not... ?

    Thanks, returned for a refund
  34. Re: 210mm G-Claron Cells - confused or not... ?

    Thank you for all your insightful answers.

    Outside diameter of the rear element group is 58mm.

    The engraving is definitely 210mm. There are no markings at all on the rear cells at all.

  35. 210mm G-Claron Cells - confused or not... ?

    I purchased this lens from ebay to take the rear cell and replace my shuttered version which has some residual cleaning marks internally. The rear cells are quite different and all the other 210mm...
  36. Re: Lens rationalisation - forum as a sounding board please

    Thanks for your input, interestingly I have decided to keep a narrower set. 80/110/150/203/300 in shuttered lenses and a 350/460 barrels with the luc shutter. This is a nice small kit with coverage...
  37. Re: Lens rationalisation - forum as a sounding board please

    Thanks for your considered responses and not mocking the question. 10x8 has done something funny to my photo head - its become much more about the emotion and the character in my work and part of...

  39. Re: Lens rationalisation - forum as a sounding board please

    I perhaps should have added that >95% of the time I take out a 3 lens kit unless a specific project is being shot, for 10x8 its often only one lens.
  40. Lens rationalisation - forum as a sounding board please

    Over the years I have shot 2x3, 5x4, whole plate and 10x8 and as a result have ended up with an odd mix of lenses which I could do with rationalising down to a set that I use. There isn't a bad lens...
