Thread: Aperture/Iris Scale Collection Web Page?

    Aperture/Iris Scale Collection Web Page?

    Hello all,

    I just aquired a Schneider Symmar 5.6/135mm Convertible 12/235mm.
    I purchased it on ebay, unfortunately, it came with a 5.6/150mm / 16/450mm scale (what lens is this?)
    Scale has serial #0011.013

    It also has a couple lazy shutter blades. So, I bought a new copal 0 for it.

    I am asking if anyone has the scale for this lens.
    If so, Can it be scanned actual size.

    What I have done in the past was print the scanned scale on transparency inkjet paper, back it with a white surface and screw on! Works like a charm!

    I'd like to start a collection of older lens scales.
    I would also consider putting up a page for access to them.

    I feel this would be a great resource for the large format community.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated

    Just curious - but you bought a new shutter because of a couple of sticky blades?
