I never realised they were "that simple". Can you still set the speeds? Or is it B only?

04-28-2006, 07:39 AM
all of them work.
from 1/1000sec till 1sec, and B

LL--Did you say what camera that shutter came from? I must have jumped over it. I've got two Canon F1's with balky shutters, wonder if a conversion is possible...

The shutter is probably a Copal Square or descendant; they're in almost all the last generation of mechanical SLRs before electronic timing took over (making a couple generations of SLRs that couldn't be used, or only at one semi-useful speed, if the battery died, before the digitals came along with even more battery dependence). If you have a camera that works on all speeds with no battery, and has a metal-leaf, vertical traveling shutter, it's probably similar to Ole's, if not identical.

Getting *to* the shutter varies in difficulty from one camera to the next, but if you don't plan to put it back together, it's MUCH easier to disassemble... ;)
