• I do not stock new Packard Shutters. I may have reconditioned shutters at reasonable prices, depending on availability.

The Cokin Style Mount fits any lens equipped with a standard P series Cokin adapter flange (supplied when ordered with a Wollaston lens)

The Collar Style Mount is specifically machined to fit the larger 88mm Ø barrel for 250mm to 1000mm Wollaston lenses.

Packard #6 are dual-mode shutters, with “Instant” and “Bulb” (long exposure) capability.

Custom collars machined to adapt your brass or process lenses to either the Cokin Style Mount or the Collar Style Mount are available. The collars are usually thumb-screw type, with a non-marking traction belt that securely grips any lens that does not have front filter threads.

The #6 Pin Kit may need altering if your shutter is an older unit.

Please note: New Packard shutters now have extended lead times and require a deposit equal to the currently published prices on the Packard website...   However, If you have a working shutter, I can incorporate it into a front mount system of your choice (Cokin or collar style).
