Kodak 203mm F7.7 and flash

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I purchased a Kodak Ektar 203mm f7.7. It's my 1st step into LF. Unforturnately there is no flash cord/sync attachment for studio flash. Is there some little special attachment made that can attach to the shutter release cable and fire the studio strobes at the same time?

Thanks in advance for any response.

Need to know what shutter the lens is mounted in. Normally the Ektars were in flash Supermatics, which would "M" or "X" sync. Sync contact was either bi-pin or large bayonet. Strange yours has no sync contact.

At the very worse, you can have it mounted into a new shutter assembly. Steve Grimes does this, or if you want to tackle the job yourself, new shutter/aperture assemblies can be purchaced from Adorama, or others. They run around $160 or so.
