    Hey apug World :smile:

    i recently bought a 480 Apo Ronar in a Sinar DB Mount and a Nikkor 450 in a copal 3 mount

    i have no lens board empty anymore for a copal 3 and no Sinar Shutter... :whistling:

    one of my other lenses is mounted on a Sinar DB board with a normal shutter but i donĀ“t know how, i bought it that way

    my question is, how do i unmount the DB stuff from the Sinar board and just stuff a copal 3 shutter onto it? any clues? havnt found a "conversion kit" or any advice so far... :cool:

    thx for your effort, i think this is the best forum available and thats because of the users here, so thx for that as well!!!! :smile:

    good light

    Just get another board to fit the shutter.

    that would have been my first approach, but i saw that the DB board reaches out a little bit (like a recessed board just the other way) which comes in handy sometimes (bellow...) and i have it lying around otherwise :wink:

    thx for your answer
