I have access to the speed dial for the sr2. I want to have a fixed frame rate of 50 or 75 as I'm worried about flicker from HMI's. As the speed dial is a potentiometer with no fixed notches I'm a little worried that it will not be accurate enough, unlike the crystal controlled speeds on the SR3.

Has anyone had any problems with the speed dial?

Thanks

This dial will not work with HMI's - you need a crystal speed control... Media Logic or Cinematogrpaphy Electrnoics The Variable control was designed for exterior, sunlight or tungsten and not exact speeds...

I am selling one with my SR package on ebay.

I will separate the package if it does not sell

I used to use this with my Arriflex 16SR, it is a Cinematography Electronics Speed control and it crystal controls the speeds.
