    Flash Sync of Nikkor W 150mm f5.6

    Hi,

    Thanks in advance for any info!

    I'm trying to figure out the flash sync speed of the Nikkor W 150mm f5.6 lense for 4x5.

    Been searching online but no information so far.

    Thanks again!

    Jerry

    There is no "synch speed" for a leaf shutter, it synchs at all speeds. Since you didn't specify, I'll assume it's in a Copal shutter. I don't recall if this has a selector for "X" or "M" synch, if it does have the selector set it to "X". If no selector, it will be "X" synch, and in either case it will synch at all speeds.

    Where did you search online? I found this http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Flash_sync in about 8 seconds.

    Hi E,

    Thanks for the reply! It's a copal 0 shutter and I'd be using a Quantum T2. I also noticed it does have the "x" labeled connector. I was just searching "Nikkor W 150mm flash sync". I did find general information about flash sync but my general ignorance about the nomenclature around flash photography and large format lenses prevented me from extrapolating any useful information.

    Thanks again!

    You're quite welcome.
    Well, in recent times there were two main producers of shutters, Copal in Japan and Compur in Europe. Lens manufacturers would choose one to mount their lenses in. Since flash synch is solely a function of the shutter (regardless of whose lens is in it), you need only search for info. regarding that make or type of shutter

    ... and the good news is that flash synch, and leaf shutter capabilities related to it, has been standardized for quite a while. One may not know htat, though, until one learns that for the first time.
