    Schneider Symmar 150 5.6 W/ Synchro Compur - Lens Board Help.

    Hi Guys,

    First post here so apologies for the predictable post asking for help! I'll post more substantially once my camera is set up.

    I'm not new to large format photography but I am new to large format ownership. I've just purchased (but not yet received) a Schneider Symmar 150 5.6 W/ Synchro Compur shutter but without a lens board. My question is which lens board # I need.

    Here is the sellers photograph of the lens and shutter:

    It will be mounted to a Cambo SC1 5x4 camera.

    Thanks for any help.

    Just noticed I have posted in the wrong forum. Sorry about that.

    The board has to fit your camera and should be bored for a #1 shutter. For advice on hole size, see http://www.skgrimes.com/products/new...standardcopals

    Thanks for the reply.

    It was my understanding from what I have read so far that I would need a Cambo Lens Board Copal #0 rather #1?

    Schneider says it is a #1. Go here http://web.archive.org/web/201009220...hiv/archiv.htm and download the 1964 Symmar brochure.

    If in doubt, wait for the lens to arrive and measure the shutter's rear tube.

    If it helps, my Technika Symmar 150/265 thread measures 39mm.

    Thanks for the replies. Would I need a flat or recessed lens board?

    Why is this? I see that Cambo do make some recessed boards.

    Recessed boards are made for wide angle lenses. You don't want to use a recessed board unless you have to because it's harder to get your fingers in there to set your shutter.
