    Mamiya Press and Universal cameras have the shutter and release coupled in the lens.

    Make that "each Hasselblad 500-series lens"
    F and FE series, i.e. 2000/200-series lenses are V System lenses as well, but don't have shutters.

    What people do to ius ethe 500-series lenses on other cameras, is get an old Hasselblad non-automatic bellows unit, and use the front end of it as mount.
    It has a cable release socket to release the shutter, and a wheel to cock the shutter again.

What medium format lenses have leaf shutters, and are there any that can be easily triggerd externally? Also what formats do they cover?
    BS, given the prices of used MF camera and lenses to fit them, why go to all that trouble, except perhaps for the joy of making something? Why not just get a camera that will accept a lens of the focal length you want? Starting with a complete camera will also save you the trouble of engineering and making a camera back that will accept a roll holder.

    Come to think of it, what focal length do you want? And what format do you want? 645, 6x6, 6x7, 6x9?

    My 4x5 box camera is lighter and more compact than any other LF camera I've ever seen. I think that I can make a medium format camera that is similarly improved over something like a pentax 67. Folding MF cameras are close to what I'm looking at, but they generally have normal or long lenses that are difficult to focus and often, not that great of quality. I'm looking at a wide-angle.
    f/22 and be there.

    Interesting that y'r 4x5 box is so small and light. How does it compare to the Piccolino? Read about the Piccolino here: http://www.obscura-camera.com/spip/spip.php?rubrique3

    Mamiya Press with 50 or 65. Graflex XL with 35/4.5 Apo Grandagon or 47/8 Super Angulon. Fuji G690. Any of the wide angle Fuji folders. Koni-Omega/Rapid-Omega with 58 or 60. Mamiya TLR with 65. All of these are easy to focus.

    Or do what I do. Century Graphic with 35 Apo Grandy, 47/5.6 SA, 60 Hexanon (ex-K-O), 80/6.3 WF Ektar. All cover 2x3.

    I hate the phrase, but this time it is appropriate. Think outside the box.

    That piccolini looks pretty cool. My 4x5 box camera is made out of a cigar box, with a Graflok back and Angulon 90. I think it weighs about the same amount as a Grafmatic. An advantage of my box camera over the Piccollini is that mine cost me about $12.

    I second the Mamiya 645 LS lenses suggestion. The main problem with medium format leaf shutters is that they are not designed to be cocked manualy (Bronicas, Hasselblads, RB/RZ). Only the Mamiya 645 LS lenses have on-lens cocking rings.

    I've got a 58mm f5.6 I'm trying to unload, uh, sell It's in a Graflex XL helical. 00 shutter, likely compur. All speeds sound good(calibrated ear).
    The Helical measures just ove 3" diameter and is 1 3/8" deep. Has a Gen-U-wine Graflex hood. SS/fstop/ cocking lever are all on the front of the helical.
    Glass on both ends is sparkly clean, no scratches or fungus.
    Pretty common to Rodent-stocks of this era it's got separation in the rear group. I think the back I had for the camera was a 6X9.
    I'd like to get $125. for it.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.
