    Compur Electronic Shutter - Reliable?

    Does anyone have experience with the Compur electronic shutter. Is it accurate? Reliable? Repairable?

    Thanks.

    I would go straight to the expert - SK Grimes. His knowledge of shutters, his custom lens caps and retaining wrench along with his service for the large format photographer is a unique opportunity for the large format photographer to take advantage of. Plus, he is a great guy.

    Good Luck

    Compur Electronic Shutter - Reliable?

    I have owned all three sizes in the past. They are very accurate. Great for long well timed exposures. The #5 is too heavy for many wooden cameras. The cable is heavy also. They were wonderful for my needs. Long out of production, and I understand there are few parts. If I still had them and they worked I would keep them, but think twice about buying them today. The lenses I had mounted in them were all Voightlander APO's, and that may have had a lot to do with likeing the shutters.
