Premium Member Tim O'Connor Posted January 2, 2008 Premium Member Share Posted January 2, 2008 I just watched the DVD about Stanley Kubrick and his career (sorry, I returned it to the video store and can't think of the proper title.) There's a story in there about how Stanley Kubrick obtained a Zeiss lens that had been developed for NASA and could shoot at F.07 and he wanted to use it on his Mitchell BNC (for Barry Lyndon I think.) The guy who modified the camera said that it would be a challenge, although he was able to do it, because the camera has two shutters and a thick aperture plate. Why would it have two shutters? Are there other cameras that do also? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
