That made me think of a desert magic hour scene I want to do where a ghost approaches from a long distance, at first unrecognizable, until it nears and it seen to be the dead wife of the protagonist.
With a CP-16R and a "bow-tie" rotating shutter, I can reduce the shutter speed to I think 12 or 16 FPs, does this mean that, at , say, 12 FPS the shutter is open twice as long as at 24 FPS?
And maybe I can get that intentional smearing like very old movies.
And if the shutter speed is twice as long and I use 500T, could somebody offer a ballpark meter reading F stop which with a 2.2 lens which would be the farthest I could push it? A reading of 1.2? 0.9?
Understand I'm looking for an extreme effect here, don't care if it's grainy as hell... I'm more thinking of how far can I push it and still get any image at all that's recognizable.
And what about the faster B+W stock from Kodak, which I think is 200?
Could it maintain recognizability of objects in the frame as well as 500T?
Analog degrades gracefully.
All ideas welcome, thanks!
