    Sometimes. That shutter was an extra-cost option. Most of the 101 Ektars I've seen were in little Supermatics with top speed of 1/400.

    Mine has a top speed of 1/400.. I'm pretty sure that makes it a Supermatic 1

    Dan I've just taken the cells from the 101mm Ektar and put them in my Epsilon which came with the 203mm Ektar it's size 0 - the shutter's marked Kodak Epsilon, then I tried them in the Copal 0 of my 150mm f5.6 Xenar just to be 100% sure, all identical threads.

    The 203mm f7.7 Ektar is a surprisingly small lens because of it's aperture. I was surprised to see the 101mm Ektar in a Zeiss Ikon Compur Rapid for sale on MWClassic's website which is why I tried it for myself.

    It may be that some lenses they were going to sell in the UK/Europe were in compatible shutters.

    Other way around that shutter was one of the budget options on the Century Graphic it's more typical use is on roll film cameras which have no focus screen. It has the same speeds 1 - 1/400 and B but no T or preview.

    The 101mm f4.5 Ektar is more common in the Flash Spermatic as you say. My Kodak Referance Handbook shows the 101mm f4.5 Ektar needing a 35mm 1.25" mounting hole and the 127mm f4.5 Etart a 38mm 1.5" hole - so different shutter sizes.

    Don't bother, I just tried the experiment.

    The 101 Ektar front cell will screw into the front of a Copal 0. The lens' rear cell is much smaller than the shutter's rear, can be inserted loosely but that's all.

    Wasn't the 203mm Ektar sold in the UK in the mount size marked "320" which was a standard one? Not so for US models.
