    Can you hep me identify this shutter

    I bought from ebay France a lot of Arca lens boards (I don't have an Arca)
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lot-de-planc...vip=true&rt=nc

    because one the boards seems to have a shutter with lot of adapters. This is the board with the shutter

    The whole package (two lenses 240 and 360mm + lot of lens boards) will be in my hands in 2-3 months (or even later) from now and I am very curious. What kind of shutter could it be? The Arca lens boards are 171mm.

    it's upside down so there's no way of guessing.

    Yes, it's upside down. But from the reflection on the table it looks like a Compound. You can see the piston cylinder and the dial.

    Uhhhh....pardon my dumb question, but if you don't have an Arca, why are you buying Arca lens boards?
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    I didn't saw the reflections but I think you are right. I scaled up the pictures and the opening of the shutter is around 80mm.

    The seller didn't want to ship outside France, speak only french (I can only understand french) and I arrange to do the shipping to a friend from France. I bought the lot only for this picture with the shutter.

    I wanted the shutter (and the adapter rings), it happens to come with the Arca boards. I want to transfer the shutter to my Cambo or Agfa board and sell/give away the Arca boards.

    Well, everything is in my hands, the boards, lenses, adapters, etc. Nothing is perfect but everything is functional.

    The board is with a Compound indeed with a lot of adapters.

    It seems that the Compund is #5, the external diameter is 125mm. What is strange, I got also a 360/5.6 Schneider in a similar Compund with the same external diameter but The Symnar is listed everywhere with a Compund #4.

    The big challenge now is to take it out of the flange, it is a little bit stuck. I really like the compund sound, first time I have one in my hands.

    The Arca boards will be listed for peanuts.

    A little update. The shutter is stuck in the Arca board. After lot of scratching I build a wood board to hold the Arca board. It is working fine on the Agfa/Ansco 8x10 and is fully removable (I can put in and out the Arca board in the adapter)

    And on the shutter a chinese magnifying glass fits perfect (screw in). Big fun ahead.

    This is the unfinished version of the adapter. Now is a little bit polished and painted black.

    Depending on what those adapters fit they may be worth a lot of money. The shutter is valuable too. The boards and flanges have some value as well. You got a very good deal!!

    Yes indeed, I already sold the boards (for a small price, hope the new owner is happy). The shutter is valuable but is stuck in the Arca board.

    The flanges are high quality, perfect fit in the shutter. For now I have no use for them.

    The russian RF-4 and the Jena Tessar have diferent opening/threads.
