Hi all,

Are the number of the ilex shutter equivalent to the copal and compur shutter.

I mean, does an ilex 3 have the same size as a copal 3??

Steve Grimes has typical dimensions of Ilex shutters (http://www.skgrimes.com/ilex/index2.htm#specsheet) and dimensions for Copal shutters (http://www.skgrimes.com/products/index.htm) on his web site.

If I'm comparing the correct numbers, converting between inches and millimeters, it appears that the Copal 3 is quite a bit larger than an Ilex number 3.

Steve himself often contributes here. Perhaps he'll chime in.

A Copal 3 is indeed much larger than an Ilex 3.
