Just need to add that this Arriflex IIC has the 172.8 degree shutter rather than the 180 to allow for flicker free use with certain lighting.
WHICH concerned me a little. ALL my Russian cameras, the Konvas-1, The Kinor 35C Rotovision 5000 and the Kinor 35PII all have 180 deg shutters. Under what conditions would the camera flicker while shooting with a 180 deg shutter? Is this problem unique to the Arri IIC or does it happen to all cameras with a fixed 180deg shutter? The fastest my cameras will run is 50 FPS. Is this a problem that is associated with high speed cinematography and not something to be concerned with at lower speeds? I know they make flicker free ballasts for HMIs (Mel has some on the truck and we've used them before, though I was to busy at the time to notice what if any difference it made to the naked eye). Does this eliminate the problem? Thanks-Steve
