Howdy -- Does anyone have a web reference or direct advice about getting and using a Packard Shutter set-up? I don't have anything yet (lens, camera body, or shutter) but am looking to get into using older brass barrel lenses in portrait lengths, probably on a vintage wooden 8x10. I know the shutters come in different sizes and I may be putting the kart ahead of the horse by focusing on the shutter first, but I suspect finding a nice Packard shutter is harder than finding a nice vintage camera and lens.
So, at the risk of bumping up the eBay prices, if people care to suggest a few starter combinations that might work well together -- camera, lens, and shutter - that might be a good starting point?
Jim Galli I await your esteemed advice. But I know several others are also hardcore into this genre and I thank you in advance.
