Anyone ever tried removing the shutter from their k-3's? Aside from being blind, I can't think of anything....

Yes, This is possible, you need unscrew a few screws only.
But, you need cine camera without shutter disk ?

I would guess without a shutter you wouldnt have any clear division between frames and you might have serious blurring. Just a thought.

I would guess that that is the point of removing the shutter. Blurring, streaking and perhaps also other unpredictable effects.

Fair enough, but what is the intended project that would cause someone to want to film in this manner?

Presumably anything of an experimental nature.

I have heard of shifting the phase of the shutter so you get some streaking, but with no shutter you may get more streaks than you want.

With no shutter you will get a continuous smear of exposure. A phase shifted (or mis-timed) shutter will streak the image, but you will still have an definte image, the degree of which depends on how much you phase the shutter.

This hasn't been the effect I've seen on others shutterless cameras.

The smear is mostly on the highlights.

Because the film movement is intermittent and not continuous each frame gets most of its exposure while still and only a small amount in motion producing the streaks. The amount of smear is then dependent on the lighting of the scene.

Do a search over on the filmshooting.com forum for examples made on super 8.
