The New Improved Packard-Ideal Shutter no. 5 For Time Exposures

no5.jpg (3699 bytes)The No. 5 shutter is widely used on industrial and commercial equipment. It has the latest mechanism and its dimensions are square with a large center opening...and is especially adaptable for cameras with a small front board. Simply constructed with few working parts, its action is fast, easy and smooth...without noise or vibration. Ruggedly constructed and finished in non-chip black matte with black matte opaque wings, and improved heavy-duty brass bushings. Available in same sizes as No. 6 model.

The New Improved Packard-Ideal Shutter no. 6 For Time And Instantaneous Exposures

no6.jpg (4631 bytes)The new No. 6 shutter for timed or instantaneous exposures is very fast . . . smooth and silent at 1/25 second under continuous hard use. Designed with the dependable Packard-Ideal mechanics, it has a very large opening centered in a square compact case. Especially adaptable to cameras with a small front board. Three wings of rigid black matte opaque material are light-tight at all times...absolutely noiseless and vibrationless (so important for time exposures). The model No. 6 is changed from time to instantaneous exposures by simply pushing in a small pin on the outside of the shutter to engage the built-in synchronizer. Requires no setting...works automatically, setting itself after each exposure...positive action for instantaneous exposures. The various shutter speeds may also be manually controlled with the bulb...one press fully opens the shutter and closes it four times as fast. 

Larger sized Packard-Ideal shutters are widely used for studio work...especially for babies, children or groups where faster exposures are needed to "freeze" movement. Ideally suited for large, fast lenses that require the accuracy of instantaneous exposures. All Packard-Ideal Shutters are constructed to highest standards and experience accumulated from many years of service to the photo industry. Newly improved heavy brass bushings, the original and dependable black matte wings, rugged metal construction with chip-proof black matte finish. Available in standard opening sizes from 1" to 3"; custom opening sizes up to 8".
