Hi,

Used a 16mm Actionmaster & a 35mm 4ER, they work fine, what is your real question?

how solid is the registration?

did you record time sound or timecode optically on the film?

this version, 16mm-1VN, looks like the best 16mm camera on the planet. tough, indestructable, 360fps, blows away anything by Arri or PV.

Hi,

The registration of the actionmaster is OK, not perfect at 500 FPS, bear in mind that all high speed cameras will shake slightly. On the assumtion you are shooting some movement you will not see any issues at all!

Hi Simon,

The Cine-Magic upgrade to the 4ER known as the 4ER+ goes to 425 fps, it was the one I used in March this year.
