Thread: Sinar Shutter on Field Camera

  1. #81

    Re: Sinar Shutter on Field Camera

    The Sinar shutter cable does stop the aperture down on the way to firing the shutter. The way to avoid the sometimes maligned Sinar Shutter Shake, I have found, thanks to posts on this forum, is to SLOWLY depress the shutter cable. About at the end of the throw you will feel an increased resistance - that is where the shutter is about to fire. Continue to depress slowly and the shutter fires. Using that method I have not experienced camera shake that finds its way to the image.

    Yes, you can feel the resistance of the aperture. Move through that, hold, and then slowly press the rest of the way to fire the shutter. Also, if you have a multi-second exposure, "B" gives by far the softest release of any setting.

    Not according to Sinar, the F stands for field, though it could be argued that the experience of using an F in the field is slightly less that perfect.

    Re: Sinar Shutter on Field Camera

    The F may stand for Field per Sinar, but it's only less of an anchor than the traditional P line, and does not have the facility of use in the field
    of a folder that forms its own case, nor even a boxy press camera (Graphlex.)

    Like a lot of people, I have a Sinar Auto Shutter but no cable. I thought it would be easier to come up with one when I bought the unit a few
    -years- ago, but it has not been. I've kept it on the back burner in the corner of my mind (<-ew!). There is a fair amount of info about the spec's
    of a suitable release, such as using an M4 (4mm x 0.75)cylindrical attachment thread; 39.5 to 46mm variously of push (or throw). But despite
    a number of makers of cable releases being named, none that I've looked at or written (Schreck, for example), produced a Sinar release. I guess
    that is because of design patent issues? It seems to my non-expert knowledge that a non-exact copy that is designed to work with the existing
    shutters would not violate business or legal interests given especially that Sinar no longer seems to make the shutters or releases....

    It seems the images have disappeared that were displayed in this thread earlier, including a home-made mounting system for various barrel lenses.
    Has anyone completed a working prototype of release for the Sinar shutters? Any pointers or good links for ideas? Thanks.

    I made it with a Burke & James to Sinar adaptor from Steve Grimes then 2 Sinar lens boards with a space between them, they looking against each other and then comes the shutter and on the shutter is a nude Sinar front frame which is from a Sinar F! So I can use any lens on a Sinar lens board!
    This I show again because from the past of my post the pictures are gone!

    I made the same thing for myself, so I could reverse-mount a Norma shutter on my Plaubel Peco Profia cameras. Then I can attach the shutter and then I can attach any of my Sinar lenses onto the Peco Profias.

    Re: Sinar Shutter on Field Camera

    hello everyone,

    I am looking for a service manual for my Sinal Copal shutter and I saw this old posted from 2010 with a few screenshots.
    Is there anyone who could send me a full copy of the service manual? I have the old green Sinar Norma version.

    Thank you!
