Large format shutter service – Camera Check Point
A useful tip and service from Camera Check Point in Dubbo, NSW
Testing your shutter:
You can get a very good idea of the mechanical condition of the shutter by checking the SLOW speeds from 1 sec to 1/15 sec.
Release the shutter and listen to the sound of the speed escapement. Do the same with the self timer (if one is fitted).
The sound of the mechanism running should ‘clean’ and without any hesitation and there should be a clear difference between speeds.
Anything else means service!
