Copal 0 retaining ring (lens flange)greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
I'm looking for a lens flange (retaining ring) for a Fujinon lens with a copal 0 shutter. Can anyone suggest a source? Thanks for any help. Steve Sousa

This should be available from any large photo dealer, or from any photo dealer by special order. The lens brand shouldn't matter. E.g., B&H stocks this item from Rodenstock as "Rodenstock 32.5x0.5mm copal "0" shutter flange".
If all else fails, the US distributer of Copal shutters is RTS Inc.: http://www.rtsphoto.com/html/copal.html

Go to www.skgrimes.com, then select Retaining rings and Flanges. He has a very large selection. Give him a call, and you can get your ring next day. Good luck,

There is a difference between a flange and a retainer. These shutters usually use a retainer. I have both on hand depending on what you want. See: http://www.skgrimes.com/adapter/index.htm for an explanation and pictures of the difference.
