I have one of these which I intend to use with old colour film. Does anybody know what the shutter speed is?

The one which called "instant" release? I think it has a rotary shutter, but regarding the speed, you may need to experiment on your own. I think the question will come up to what film speed to use. If you take off the top part, there is an instruction/label; does it say which film speed (DIN/ASA) should be loaded in?

The older cameras rotary shutters were about 1/25 to 1/50 speed. I'd try film speed 100 or slower.
