Hopefully soon I'll be shooting some long exposure stuff on super 8 but I'm having problems figuring out exactly how to use the Leicina ST 1 electronic control unit. Any help? I have a manual but the wording on page 9 seems very confusing. Rotary knob dot facing dot (?) range 1 range 2, I'm surprised they couldn't make it clearer. So I'm not really looking for single frame operation, but long exposure operation, but again, the manual isn't very clear. Another basic question: when they say "interval", are they referring to the time between exposures? And "scene duration" is the actual exposure time? Will the "interval" time and "scene" time always be the same?
I just received a Leicina special and it appears to function from what I can tell. The film in the cart moves, etc etc. however... There's one test that's been recommended to super 8 camera buyers where you look straight into the camera and press the shutter release to see if the shutter movement is visible. This works on my rolei, my Nikon, but with my new Leicina special, I don't see that flicker when I do this test. I tried opening it up (to try the same test but from the opposite point of view) but I can't seem to get the motor running with it open. Is this normal? Or just a bad sign?
Hey all, DPing an independent short come December 9th-11th. There is a small Interior Night scene on location, where I would like to simulate stormy weather outside. I would like to do something like water in front of a fixture, but how can I achieve this? We will likely be using something like an Arri 1K with Urban Vapor gel outside the window to simulate a street light. Won't be shooting towards the window, so the rain effect will just need to be a texture. Also, would like to simulate thunder, in combination with the street lights. We'll have a couple of SPE-6 Flickermasters. How can this be achieved? Thanks ahead of time!
