Does anyone know of another 16mm camera besides the SR3 that has both a variable shutter AND can go higher than 60fps? Does anyone modify ACL's, GSMO's, Arri SB high speeds (the ones that go 80fps), etc to take a variable shutter? Or is it possible to modify an NPR to shoot higher than 40fps? Just a thought I'm sort of toying with in the realm of owning a b-cam with lots of features. Any input would be muchas appreciated. Thanks dudes/dudettes.

Considering how often one needs to shoot above 60 fps AND close down the shutter, you might be better off just renting the SR3 for the rare times that happens. Anyway, I can't think of any alternatives -- I don't think the NPR can modified to crank much faster. Or if you're not doing it at the same time, you will probably just need to get one camera that goes over 60 fps and another camera with the variable shutter. It may ultimately be cheaper than modifying one camera to do both.
