Hi everyone,

Is it a realistic option to project footage shot with the K-3? I understand that since it will not run film in a perfectly steady speed, there will be slight variations in exposure from frame to frame, and this will show up during projection.

Am I mistaken? Please share your experience.


Thanks,
Nitay

If it is off that much, it needs to be sent into the shop to be serviced. Unless you want to have to have a frame by frame job done if you do a digital film. Even my Old 1930's Devry can shoot constantly exposed frames if I can find it double perf film.

Are you asking about the K-3 in general, or do you have one that runs that badly. I can't imagine they are all that bad. In some cameras the first frames are a bit off do to the time it takes for the mechanism to get up to speed. If it's that bad it you'd hear it.

Yes you can project it
& yes it's got even exposure...
Expect like Rakker said the first two frames are off or white.

Give her try, you'll find it's not that complicated.


Good Luck
