An AC friend of mine is on set right now and needs to change the shutter angle, but has never done it. Anybody know how to change the shutter angle of the Panavision G2? Thanks!!

It is rather easy and obvious. Look at the back of the camera and you will see the shutter angle adjustment knob.


But to quote the professional cameramans handbook.

"To Change shutter opening.
1. Pull safety locks at side of external control knob and move them aside.
2. Pull out external control latch and move indicator to desired shutter opening, close latch, make certain that pin is engaged.
3. Move each saftey lock against each side of the external control knob to prevent accidental opening or closing of the shutter."

I also remember some panavision cameras have a shutter lock lever, inside the camera, towards the top above the movement.

Hope this helps!
