    I have a 00 size Synchro Compur shutter in which to mount my 65mm f8 Super Angulon. The shutter currently has a scale running from f5.6 up to f32 to suit the 80mm lens which used to be fitted to it.

    If you own an f8 65mm SA, I would appreciate it if you could post a picture similar to the one I have attached here. If you set it to f8, I can use the dot on the body to the left of the aperture lever to judge where to start f8 from. I have the scale from its old shutter but it is over a smaller range than the new scale. I thought I could just add one stop to the scale I have but it's more complicated than that.

    And if your wondering why I don't use the old scale on the new shutter, it's because the old shutter had a Linhof front with the f numbers engraved into it whereas the new shutter has a separate plate screwed on (which I'm hoping is painted on the back so I can laser etch a new scale!).


    Thanks,

    Steve.
