    SAm,

    Are you trying to stop motion or simply attempting to use the equipment under bright conditions with film speeds that require such fast shutter speeds? If the latter, consider using neutral density filters.

    I use this solution when I want to shoot at f/4ish with my Verito and similar speed portrait lenses in barrel. I have 2.0 & 3.0 ND filters that block 6 2/3 and 10 stops respectively. This allows me to use films like TMX 100 & TMY 400 at f/4 in daylight conditions with a Packard or a hat.

    It may be an option, my lenses have no aperature so I figure exposure for f3.5 or so and go with it.

    The ND could work!

    Thanks

    You can try to find a roller blind shutter, though most will be quite old and not so low cost, also might require repairs. Other than that, some sort of filter mount solution combined on a Packard shutter might do the trick. Ideally, if you can find a Packard shutter with flash sync, you could use the flash for faster speeds.

    Ciao!

    Continuing from Dan's thoughts: For 4x5", just get an Alphax, Betax, Ilex, or the like #3, or larger shutter and front-mount. Works usu. really well as long as you're not thinking extreme wide angle....

    Something else i've heard done is someone stripping a speed graphic of the bed, rails, rangefinder, back, etc and using the body+shutter.
    An ugly 2x3 speed will be pretty cheap and still large enough for most lenses.

    An off-topic.

    Ole, Is it a kind of smart, universal, way on lens mounting to lens board? If it is than can You put a bigger picture of the center part with it?

    Here's a different one, without a lens in it. That makes it a little easier to see what it is. This one's a bit bigger though, so it won't fit on a Speed Graphic lens board. It sits on a Sinar board now, for use on a Gandolfi 8x10":

    Nice device! What's it's name? Where was it produced?
