    Remove a Copal lens from a Cambo WDS lens panel and helicoid??

    Inside the bayonet is a lens nut just as it would be on a lens board you unscrew that and it should come off very easily. The bayonet is basically the lens board.

    Shiny stuff. a question for the product people

    I shoot exclusively shiny jewelry and this book helped me tremendously. The basic problem is if you use diffuse lighting you will not get the metal look you are going after. The thing you aren't thinking about is that you are not actually shooting the item in question you are effectively...

    Copal 0 servicing

    I think Sk grimes might be able to help. And you can always just swap out the shutter with another one.

    Any way to get Schneider or Rodenstock wide angle set-up on a 35mm camera?

    Unlikely with the schneiders. The body of the camera won't allow you to get close enough to the sensor with any mounting mechanism to reach infinity. Its why most people adapt medium format wide angle lenses for movements.

    Converting electronic shutter lens to copal 0 mechanical?

    De thread the front element of the lens to simulate shimming slightly. Easy to do and see if it benefits the image without sourcing shims.

    Converting electronic shutter lens to copal 0 mechanical?

    I believe they are fairly easy to find. Skgrimes would by far be the easiest place to get shims. And they would already be sized for copal 0 vs a custom shim company. There are many places that sell shims specifically for optical uses. I would also recommend a quality lens spanner tool...

    Converting electronic shutter lens to copal 0 mechanical?

    I have done this exact thing I had a Schneider 150mm digitar on a roller shutter I took it off and swapped it with a copal from a rodenstock 90mm. It's pretty easy to do and minimal fuss. Yes there can be a difference in optical shimming but you can always experiment with various amounts of...
