Hello,

 

This is my first post so apologies if I don't quite know how to use this yet!

 

I bought an Aaton XTR Prod earlier in the year and have now shot a few projects on it and have been loving it.

However, the last project I shot has come out with noticeable jitter, as though the film is still moving down as the frame is being exposed, this creates a slightly soft image with an ugly shake. Luckily the film is a handheld rough and ready approach so it blends in OK and was usable. But I don't want to see this in future. 

 

I would like to find out how I can get rid of this.

 

Could this be the camera,

the magazines 

the way it was loaded,

or the connection of the mag to the camera?

 

The amount of jitter seemed to vary between mags. I had 4 mags.

 

Any help would be appreciated in being able to fix this problem.

 

Thanks!

Joe
