    Lens on copal/compur shutter ?

    Is there any way to mount this lens (Apo-Ronar) on a shutter and placed it on a Linhof lensboard ?
    If so which number on the shutter ?

    Hard to tell for sure without knowing more. What is the focal length?

    Is that a Ronar? The shorter ones use Copal No. 1.

    Just do a Google search, e.g. "rodenstock apo ronar copal."

    The S. K. Grimes web site has a guide for mounting process lenses into shutters.

    Rodenstock did sell Apo-Ronars in shutter, in focal lengths up to 480mm. But the same glass was also sold in various barrel mount versions for process camera use. From some of these the cells can't be swapped directly into a standard Copal or Compur.

    It is a 240mm and to big for a #1 shutter. Serial number is 5711175.

    Afraid you'd need some custom machine work for it to be adapted to a #3 Copal or Compur or one of the larger classic shutters.
