Howdy, new guy here. No worries, I'll keep the newbie queries and anxieties to a minimum.

Cam's new to me, late model baby speed, Graflok back, Wolly 101, typical appointments, great great shape.

There are no flash sync contacts for 1/30th-1/50th in the curtain. Surprised to find this! No "holes" where they might have been. I can't imagine it's typical, but maybe so. Let me know what you folks think.

I'd like to install some, homemade no doubt, but not having another cam for reference I need to know just where to place them. If someone would be kind enough to measure theirs, perhaps the bottom edge of the top of the slit as reference. Hope to hear from y'all, and thanks!

Oh well that's kind of a drag! I do like to chase the shutter, I suppose I could give it a try on T. Thanks for the cue to read the manual!

The FPS only syncs with Focal Plane flashbulbs. Leaf shutters that do not have a X sync setting can be used with electronic flash on their F setting with no loss of light and on M setting at speeds of 1/30 or slower with some loss of light at 1/30 shutter speed.
