A view on the WZFO Shutter with the Speed Cam Ring removed.

Well, what must i say ? ..........
........ Clearly this is a design uncommon to other shutters i saw.

Components to the left, Cocking Lever, Main Drive and Release mechanism, bear a remote resemblance to the Gauthier line of shutters.

Components to the top and right, Escapement and Flash synchronisation, are clearly different.

For the time being i shall regard this Shutter as indeed a design of WZFO themselves.
Maybe not a very sophisticated shutter, even rather crude, but it still works after 50 years and that counts to something.
