Hi : The Synchro compur is the more preferable as you can still get them repaired , relatively easily. To determine whether it is an 0 or 1 size , measure the diameter of the locking thread and if it is 1.36 inch it is an 0 if it is 1.64 inch it is a 1. Yours Robert White

I'm no expert, but somewhere I have read that the Kodak Supermatic shutter is a very good shutter. If my memory is correct, it may been have recommend over all other shutters. As far as getting it repaired, that I don't know about. The Ektar 203 is a very tiny lens. I would like to get one myself.
