I have the owners manual. I understand the exposure for continuous shooting, but i am still confused about the single frame mode. Do you think that the fps actually changes depending on the setting when you are in single frame mode? Or is there just one effective shutter speed for single frames?

i think page 7 might help

I'm not familiar with that particular camera, but generally with spring-driven cameras the single frame exposure time is not greatly changed by the speed settings, and remains close to the exposure of the slowest speed. In the space of a single frame the spring needs to overcome the mechanism's inertia, and the governor doesn't get a chance to really regulate the speed.
So I'd guess your camera would have an exposure time of around 1/25 to 1/30 sec in single frame mode. But it can depend on the state of the camera's mechanism. You might want to do some testing to be safe.
PS I love that it's your great grandfather's camera, that makes it a pretty special project. Good luck!
