    Hi, Anyone any experience or info on conversion in NZ, I have a nice DB lens that I'd like to stick in a Copal, is it even possible this way round?

    Cheers

    What Copal number are you needing?

    I have a copal #0 that is broken, drop the lens bugga :sad: . You can try with my broken one if you want just to see if it will fix.

    Hi Allan,

    Thanks mate, but I finally managed to pick up a cbale release for the DB shutter, (hard to find, unless you want to pay 450 NZ$ upwards for a new one! :surprised: )
    So I'm going to keep the DB mount for now.

    Sorry to hear about the lens! That's not fun
