Hi Guys,

My maths :blink: calculations are not coming together for me in ascertaining the correct shutter angle for a s16mm blow-up to 35mm.

Can anyone please provide the formula?

Many Thanks in advance

Shutter angle used doesn't affect the blow-up process, only the motion artifacts, as it does even if you're not blowing it up.

You may be confused with shooting DV for transferring to film, where certain long shutter times in interlaced-scan photography affect resolution.
