View Full Version : shudder speed problems

3-Apr-2011, 11:59

I was just doing some shooting and I noticed that my shudder times are really off. I've never had a problem with this before. Does anyone know how to fix this? It just seems like everything is a bit gunked up and is slowing the shudder down.

I'm using a really old Schneider 150/210. It's really old and pretty basic.

It needs a CLA (Clean Lube Adjust) About $70 at Flutot's in Whittier CA and there are other places in the states.

And it's "Shutter..."

You could try the DIY route if your brave. It's not brain surgery but it involves lots of tiny screws that are easy to loose and harsh solvents (zippo lighter fluid). So if you are inclined to shudder easily it's not for you..
