    Their website indicates they stopped marketing LF-shutters in 2009.
    Neither Prontor nor Copal made a statement on this matter (I know of).


    As indicated above, there might be stocks at the lens industry.

    Thanks. I understand Rodenstock offer lifetime warranty (I'm not sure about Schneider) so they must have secured quite some shutters for future repairs.

    They announced [or perhaps more accurate to say that they let it be known] about their decision to discontinue their mechanical leaf shutters in 2012 and shipped their final production run in early to mid 2013.

    According to one LF manufacturer, they were told that this last run [presumably #0 shutters exclusively] would be sufficient to supply the world market for ~2-years.

    I hope they will be able to adapt electronic shutters to the existing range of lenses. I see they are made by Rollei, Schneider and Rodenstock but also 600 - 1300 Eur dearer compared to Copal.

    With max 1/60 s I see the Schneider electronic shutter beeing designed for studio shots mostly.

    I do like the fact they are using rounded shutter blades though.

    Since they already have tooled up for most if the design (shutter blades, exterior shutter parts etc) they could possibly design a mechanical shutter with less investment cost...

    OR add some kind if mini battery attachment to run the electronics... Wouldn't work for me but is better than carrying your computer around...

    Rodenstock:
    The shutter can be fully controlled from your computer, as well as by iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad via Wi-Fi the computer.
    Do you really want a mechanical one or just an electronic one that is selfsustained (as the late Compur Electronic)?

    It can be controlled via many gadgets but it still needs a PC/MAC to be connected to: http://www.rodenstock-photo.com/medi...r.en_10383.pdf (page 4)
