    Schneider Super-Angulon 8/90 with broken shutter still worth using?

    Hello, when I got my large format kit a few months ago now I got a 210mm, 150mm and a 90mm now the shutter was in bits for the 90mm so I just left it like that, but today I just put it back together now the apertures work but shutter does not so I wondered if 1) the lens is worth getting another shutter for it 2) buying a newer version of the lens which won't be for some time 3) use the lens only for long shutter speeds.

    I don't really know how good the lens is on the camera it looks fine it's all clean so I feel it would be good to use, I could do with a wider than 150mm as I have needed it from time to time.

    Kind Regards
    Paul

    I use mine for long exposures. Any decent lens is fun to play with, some of mine use the film slide for a shutter, others use lens caps, some only have B setting that works. I make mat lensboards and play with them.

    I never thought about using the dark slide I guess long enough exposure a bit of shake really won't matter thank you for giving me the confidence just to go a head and do it!

    A 90 SA is a good lens. Shutter repair or replacement is worth the cost. They were about $450 U.S. new 15 years or so ago.

    It isn't necessarily about a long exposure or using the dark slide that protects the film in the holder.

    You are actually way ahead of the old barrel lenses that have no aperture control.

    Jim's technique is also fun for portraits, people get a kick out of the low tech action.
