    Re: What kind of shutter is this?

    That’s a Compur shutter, not a Copal, and not a #3, either.

    This was not uncommon on this vintage of Schneider lens, I have a Super Angulon 121/8 with the same Compur setup. The shutter in mine...

    I made a track for an 80mm lens to enlarge roll film on my D3–just close enough to keep the lens in range of the bellows. I used a jigsaw and an aluminum flat bar which I then riveted to an incorrect...
