Schneider G-Claron 240/f9 in barrel, Packard shutter? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Hi all, Does anybody know which size of Packard shutter is needed for a G-Claron 240/f9? Is it the best choice? I think get it mounted on a modern shutter would be very expensive.Thank's for your helpfull contribution!!

Daniel, I am pretty sure that the 240/9 screws directly into a no. 1 shutter, so mounting should be nothing more than the price of the shutter and the aperture scale.

Lots of information on Packard Shutters here.

Jason is right, the cells screw straight into a copal 1 shutter, I have one in this shutter. The shutters are easy to find and not too expensive.
