    Copal 1 and Copal 1 Press Shutter sizes

    Hi,
    I'm going to soon have my old Kowa Graphic 210 back from a long-term loan.
    It's in an older Copal 1 Press shutter, and I'd like to put it in a newer-style Copal 1 shutter.
    Are both shutters the same size, or are there any differences that would make this not worth the effort?
    Thanks in advance.

    Copal #1 = Copal #1 = Copal #1 ...

    The only difference between cock-and-shoot and press Copals is that press shutters have slightly shorter rear tubes and slightly longer rear tubes. Total tube length is the same. This can be a problem with lenses whose rear cells go deep into the shutter. That's not your Kowa Graphic.

    De rien.

    Vous avez tort. Je suis un etatsunisien anglophone qui ne parle, lis, et entends qu'anglais.

    N'aillez pas peur, je ne le dirais à personne.
    Mon secret, je suis un américanophile qui se cache au Canada. Aussi anglophone unilingue.

    Correctement - ...anglophone qui ne parle, lit et entend que l'anglais.

    That's quite a trick.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    Indeed. Maybe that's why whatever Copal 1 Press shutter you choose, it's always the same length...
