Hii´m thinking to purchase an external speed controller, but i´m not sure if the LTR7 cam supports high rates.
Aatons LTR7 need some alteration to shoot high frame rates?

thanks

You can get them modified to run at 54 fps. I believe it involves replacing some of the bearings with those used on the LTR54 and you have to use the 16V batteries.

It's not smart to run an LTR7 over 32fps. Various parts (such as the claw) will wear very quickly and registration may not behave at high speeds. That and the fact that you'd be blasting a 30+ year old camera beyond its original design spec is not a great idea.

*cringes*

It's one of those things you can do, but shouldn't.

You can redline your volvo and race a mustang... but if you want to continue to use your volvo to pick your kids up from soccer practice, you really shouldn't.
