    Nice to see this old thread resurrected.

    I spent a happy hour looking at the pics on Jim's website. Lots of pics on big cameras from big vintage lenses :cool:

    We are still waiting for the flash synch' to be described, I seem to remember for as many years as you have been advertising this shutter

    Any luck with the pix of your cleaning ladies?

    (PS - I have just watched the JG shutter video, better than Matrix I, II and III together - Why does no one collect all that scrap metal and sell it to be made into new Toyota cars?)

    Shutter in one hand, pop the flash with the other hand. Flash sync requires lubrication of the photographer, not the shutter, with the proper fluids. I recommend Makers Mark or Jack Daniels, but be warned that flash sync may become erratic if too much lubrication is used.
