    Copal S Shutter info

    I am looking at a fuji 180MM in a Copal S shutter - I am familiar with the copal numbered shutters, but cannot find the hole size for Copal S anywhere, is it actually a 3S?

    Which 180 is it? For shutters used with those lenses, see http://www.subclub.org/fujinon/byfl.htm and scroll down to 180 mm.

    You might try measuring the diameter of the shutter threads, with a set of calipers, and check on this site:

    I had the Sub Club bookmarked, but it appears the link is dead.
    Best,

    The '3' in '3S' may have simply rubbed off. It is most likely a Fujinar 180mm f/4.5 barrel lens.

    I forgot about the Wista press shutters. If it is one of those, it is a #1 size. Wista press shutters were made in #0 and #1 sizes. The very last Shanel shutters were also marked Wista.
