Hey all,

I'm looking to find out what the shutter speed would be when holding down the inching button on the Arri BL4 (180 degree shutter). I'd like to try doing some timelapse with it and like the idea of the long exposure time, I just want to get a precise idea of what that time would be!

Thanks in advance

I

Hi- I think another question might be whether or not the inching button provides consistent exposure for each frame.

The words "precise" and "inching knob" don't really belong together.

Perhaps you should give the Arri guys a call in Blauvelt, NY. Then you may have to do a test to see what you like.

Best
