I a m new on this forum and I live in France. I have a problem with my rodenstock sironar 18O mm for my 4x5 camera.
Shutter speed don't seem to work anymore (haven't used my vew camera for the past 15 years) and I guessed it's the compur battery attached to the lens which is out. Anybody can help? Is it still possible to find spare parts? Where?

Gerard Metrot (Photo Suffren) is highly recommended on the French LF form http://www.galerie-photo.info/forum/

If you have a electronic compur shutter, the you will likely only need a battery.
If the battery has been sitting in the shutter for 15 years, it may have leaked. Make sure to clean out any corrosion from the inside of the battery compartment.
