    Revisiting an earlier abanded project. I was able to acquire a donor RTS3 for 40€. I am now getting close to where I need to be to get the replacement shutter out!

    Good luck with the repair! This must have been the most advanced mf camera of its time. Once I'll get one for myself.

    I suggest you do. It's an inspiring machine! Nowadays they are not ridiculously expensive anymore.

    I have an RTS and an RTSII. Got the feeling I have to try a III someday. What a fun repair job. Good luck.

    The donor-shutter is out. So far, I don't think I have damaged anything..

Works great now. He says the RTS II is an RTS I with better internal electronics design inside.
    Actually, there's more difference than just that. The shutter was changed between the 1 and the II from cloth to metal.

    Richard-

    the next time I get out to SF, I can bring my RTS III along if you want to play with one for an afternoon.

    Scott,

    Your friendly gesture might be hazardous. Once Richard played with it, he will want to get one..
