    I have a 305 G-Claron that does not fit a Copal 1 Shutter... It is bigger. Any idea of why this lens is this way?

    I was planning on having 210, 240, 270 and 305 lenses plus a single shutter for them all..... But this 305 has me stumped....

    Frank:

    You have an older 305 G-Claron...I have the same one. Its still a G-Claron though...not a Repro-Claron. It will fit a #2 Copal, which is rather hard to find I must say. It took me some time to be able to find a #2 shutter on e-bay, but I finally did. Mine is fitted into a #2 Compur, which is a bit easier to find then the Copal one. ..and much less expensive.

    I have 150mm and 210mm G-Claron lenses out of some sort of process camera. I would like to have them put in shutters. Is it as simple as getting the proper size shutter and screwing them in? Or do I need to have someone who knows what they are doing mount them? And who would that person be?

    Shutter sizes

    Doesn't sound right to me either Frank. Was looking at the Schneider data page yesterday and they show the 210-305's as #1's and the 355 as #3.

    My 150mm G-Claron is in a Copal 0 shutter and my 210mm is in a Copal 1, as is my 240mm G-Claron.

    This is in agreement with the current Schneider G-Claron specifications:

    Not a repro...... a plain old G-Claron. I do not have a COpal 3 SHutter to test the theory, could somone please measure a shutter for me and tell me the correct (Approx) size of the threads on the front group so I can measure and compare......

    Thanks
