Hi all! 

So I have an experiment in mind.  I would like to shoot some drawn animation under camera (16 or 35)... but I need the ability to rewind to a precise frame to do another exposure.  

 

Most of the setup I can put together for the shooting, but I am unsure which cameras have the ability to rewind like this.

 

With the film being so short even shooting it on 35 wouldn't be cost prohibitive.  And lastly, I usually scan my drawings or even draw them digitally to begin with, but I want to experiment with this approach for my own enjoyment (even if it is more laborious)

You can run the Arri IIC, 35-3, or 435 all in reverse. I believe there are motors for the 16S for reverse.

Bolex H16 RX spring-wound cameras can be rewound and they've built-in frame-by-frame counters.

Thanks you guys! I can't believe I forgot about the Bolex having a built in frame counter, I've used one several times...
