I'm wondering if many forum members have shot footage with the Pathe Webo / Super 16 cameras? If so, what would your opinions be on the image registration, both at 24fps, high running speeds and single frame? I am tossing around the idea of doing time lapse shooting with a Pathe (I don't have one as yet) though one of my main concerns is if there will be any variations in the exposure duration with each individual frame that would cause flickering.

Interesting thing about this camera is that they gave it a fancy name (Super 16) despite the fact that it's a regular 16mm camera.

The webo came out in 1946 when there was only 16R.
& the 9.5mm version was also called super.

The super refers to the camera itself. For 1946 it reallly was a Super Camera, reflex, 80 fps.

the really interesting thing about this camera is i put a tobin sync motor for a bolex up against the side of it and it appears that it will fit with minor modifications
