    Any chance that you can un-private it?

    Thanks!

    Re: studio shutter video

    eddie ... do you ever use the shutter as a non - bulb/time shutter ?
    i have had a few studio shutters, and they work great by flicking the long throw release

    if you use a bulb release ( degroff ) ...
    the shutter blades open and close very fast ... i can get to around 1/50th or 1/60th S with a fast squeeze
    and 1/10thS or around there with a slow one ...
    and a long sustained squeeze of a bulb will ... keep the shutter open ( on BULB ) until you squeeze it again.
    lot of control, and really easy !

    degroff cylinders appear on eboink all the time for just a few dollars, and coupled with bloodpressure hose + bulb ...
    (probably the best release money can buy )

    Just need to work out a way to replace the missing cable release "bit" on mine. There's a thread here that shows a way, so I might try that.

    Great job Eddie ... Studio Shutter operation is a pretty common question and a video makes it soooo much easier to explain.

    As far as speed is concerned, I don't think I've ever gotten faster than 1/5 ... maybe 1/10 ... using the "quick flick" method. But I shoot almost exclusively wide open . . . or close to it ... so that might limit speed.

    I'd love to figure out a way to hit 1/50 of a second (I'm not familiar with a degroff bulb) . Anybody else been able to do that.

    The open/close switch is also often missing . . . the switch itself is pretty easy to fabricate but the little shoulder screw that is used to hold it is impossible to find . . . Anybody know of a source . . . the usual online screw suppliers don't carry anything that small.

    i checked the shutter. both wide open and stopped down gave me almost the exact same speed....right about 1/6.

    Wolly used to claim about 1/5th second with these. Obviously with smaller diameter aperture it may be a bit faster, but probably not much.

    maybe ...

    but i have made side by side exposures with a studio and copal shutter .. same everything .. soup too ..
    they looked the same, and printed the same ... ( i think i would have noticed a 2-3 stop difference ... )
    ive never had troubles with a degroff, and they work great with a betax and alphax and other shutters ..

    Thanks, Eddie. I have never seen one, so it was good to see what the studio shutter was all about.
