SR2 frame rates and shutter speed.

Recommended Posts

Hey there. Got a question regarding an SR2 and low frame rates. 

I own an SR2 with a speed control. I know at 24fps it's 180 degrees or about 1/50th of a second. If I change the fps on the speed control, to say 12fps, does the camera stay fixed at 1/50th or is it locked on 180 degrees and result in 1/24th a second? Hopefully that makes sense.

Since it's a mechanical shutter set to 180 degrees, at 12 fps, the exposure time would be 1/24th.  You'd have to change it to 90 degrees to get 1/48th at 12 fps.
