    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Thank you, Ian. Very good to know!

    My Karat 36 has the Compur Rapid and I'm familiar with the folly of going to/from 1/500 once the shutter is tensioned.

    Get a decent shutter, maybe not . . . . . . . . . . . . let me buy them all first

    The bigger Thornton Pickard roller-blind shutters don't turn up very often but when they do they tend to sell for slightly higher prices (if accurately described). They are very practical 1/15th to 1/90th + T, not all have speed indicators though. I have a few larger ones and have fitted some to the front of large Petztvals for others.. There's two types, front mounted and between lens and camera (just the way the casing's made).
