    Re: 43/44mm shutter hole?

    I have a hunch it's probably 44 mm. That's a common but not the only mounting thread size for the dial-set Compur, see here: https://skgrimes.com/products/mounting-flanges/

    Filing this out will be...
  3. Re: No dumb questions here...What have I purchased?

    I think that is a Prontor shutter. It looks like the Prontor logo on the right front, photo 4. Has anyone seen a dial-set Prontor? The lens serial number indicates circa 1961-62. The 1962 Symmar...

    Not a camera, but metol. I've only heard it spoken by Americans (and not that many times) and it's been with a long "e": mee-tall. I understand this word was coined by Agfa so I wonder how it was/is...

    Re: optar 203mm

    Thank you for this very interesting bit of industrial history. I have a 203 mm f/7.7 Ektar made in 1959 (s/n RTxxx) mounted in a No. 1 Compur shutter; the shutter is marked "Graphic" on the face....
  11. Re: Henry Paine camera repair (Stockton CA) closing
