Hey, quick film question. I'm shooting on an LTR7 and have a quick question. On the frame rate knob it has the different frame rates. Its has the lower frame rates then 24, 28, and then two blank spots. The owner's manual says it goes up to 32. Do all LTR's only go up to 32, any chance the blank spaces are for 36 fps, or 48?

I'm doing a camera test tomorrow, so i can hopefully figure it out better, but just wondering if anyone has some knowledge here.

Thanks!

It should be 32fps. Some cameras have extra spaces on their speed dials for 29.97 or something else 'custom'. And then there is a blank space on the dial for the set screw that holds the dial on.

Some LTR7's have been factory modified to go 54 fps (essentially upgraded to LTR54's).

Still others have been modified by 3rd parties to go even higher... which scares the willies out of me.

Hi,
the white dot on the speed dial enables the crystal speeds 25 f/sec and 24 f/sec that you select from an separate switch.
Maybe you know this but from your posts I was not sure, and this is really important to know.
