    Post Slip on focal plane shutter

    A new slip on focal plane gravity fed shutter is now ready for anyone who may be interested in one. Photos of the shutter and photos taken with the shutter on a LF camera can be seen at this link;

    If you are interested contact me at rtincher@prtcnet.org or rtincher@hotmail.com
    These shutters really work from speeds 1/1000 down to 1/8. I have been using a couple of them for the last six months.
    Let me know what you may think about this lightweight (4.4oz) unit.
    Thanks in advance:

    Cool
    But that's not at the focal plane- the film is the focal plane
    That nitpick aside, Cool

    Figure out a way to display the actual travel of the shutter and you will have the golden egg of devices.

    That looks pretty neat, how does one select shutter speeds?

    Two good shutters went unsold on Ebay last night, the seller mis-labelled them as pre-Packard type shutter, while they were Thornton Pickard (or copies).

    They often sell for very little and are extremely easy to service/renovate.

    Selecting the speeds is simply removing a pin and repositioning the curtains. Not shown in the photos.

    The Thorton-Pickard that is for sale now is much more expensive and looks to out weight the Gatts/Tincher shutter many time over. I don't have to defend the Gatts/Tincher shutter, it has proven itself time and time again! Reich, do you mean the actual travel speed of the shutter? It falls at 32 feet per second, according to Newton.

    But the really big question is - "How Much"

    A bit on the high side for my taste, but you might think otherwise......
