    Last night I was getting my recently constructed wide angle panoramic camera ready for its first film when I noticed something wasn't quite right with the shutter. On of the blades had come loose and was floating around inside. I retrieved it by removing the elements.

    The shutter works fine but I need someone in the UK (preferably) who can take it apart and put the shutter blade back in.

    I took the front off to have a look and quickly put it back together again. If I carried on, I would have just created a collection of spare parts!

    Any ideas?

    Try John Quantick at Black on White in Bristol. He recently did a great job on two old lenses of mine.
