    Re: Sinar Shutter on Field Camera

    Just passing on two things that were passed on to me:

    Store the shutter on "8 seconds" and not "B".

    Also shooting rapidly with the shutter was the most common reason of the shutter breaking.


    Both came from a Sinar repair person.

    Any camera that can be used conveniently in the field can be considered field cameras. An Arca Swiss Cassic F is definitely a field camera.

    As it was manufactured by Sinar, I didn't consider the F model to suitable for field work; too bulky when folded. But after customizing a 6" rail as a Sinar F base rail, I used my F a lot in the field, and it worked out great.

    I've seen Sinar shutter adapters made for Deardorff 8x10's on EBay. So, that's one example. I think that I've also seen them for Arca-Swiss 171mm format frames.

    As the OP and having spent much time and other resources on various adaptations, I feel my 8x10 Norma is indispensable as a field camera. That it doubles as a studio camera is the gravy on my potatoes.
