    Compur button shutter

    Recently saw a lens listed as being mounted in a Compur button shutter. I am familiar with dial set and rim set, never heard one descibed as "button", can anyone enlighten me? An image would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I guess I'm not the only one.

    (1) Don't be so coy, share the listing so we can see whether you left out any information.

    (2) Some Compur shutters have buttons on the side of the barrel. Sometimes it locks out the self-timer mechanism. Sometimes it sets the blade arrestor: cock the shutter, slide the button (forwards, IIRC), fire the shutter and it will stay open for focusing.
