    Slightly Confused

    Trivial question, but I'll ask it anyway. I often see LF-users say something like, "I have an 'X' lens in a 'Y' shutter." Shouldn't it be "A 'Y' shutter in an 'X' lens"? (Or as my late father used to say, "They've got it Bass Ackwards.")
    Anyone care to enlighten me on this? Thanks.

    lenses mount IN shutters... is all... large format shutters are biggish annular affairs kind of like a ring - the front and back lens groups usually screw into the shutter... hence the terminology.

    I once heard a comedian use this line: "My tongue got in the way of my eye-teeth and I couldn't see a thing you were saying."

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    There's that 2-Nu song which mentions "a girl who can talk with her eyes"

    "I think you see what I'm saying"
