The lens boards for Super are more "complex" than for example a Crown. One can find the nonSuper boards w/o much effort. It seems like finding a Super board (with the shutter trip etc) is very difficult. Any hints to finding one?

Also a Schneider 110 Super Symar XL might fit in a Super and close lid. The lens diameter is narrow enough to fit between the rails just to clear the tracks, but hits the narrowest part of the rail.

What is the odds of attaching a 110 SS-XL "properly" to a Super?

Thanks

Tim

Finding SuperGraphic board just takes time and luck. Lots of both.

If you are not using the electric release there is no need for a SuperGraphic board, though... a Pacemaker Graphic board will work. There are several that seem to be eternally available on ebay.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for your response.

It is desirable to have use of the side electric button for flashbulb trigger and to keep the camera / lens meeting original specs.

Until a proper lens board happens along I'll make use of the type you mention. Greatly appreciate the pointer.

I am sure "my machinist" could make replicas but the cost would be high.


Best Regards.

Tim
