Hi.
What is the shutter mechanism in digital cinematogrphy?What is the time of expose for each frame? for example in 24p speed?
for mind approach,in film motion camera when the camera work in 24 f/s,expose for each frame is 1/48 seconds(if the shutter angle is 180 degree)and 1/48 for frame changed. 1/48 + 1/48 = 1/24.
is the digital camera working similar to film camera.
describe it please.
thanked

Most digital cameras just have an electronic shutter where you set the exposure time, like 1/48th or 1/50th, though on some cameras, you can set a shutter angle figure and it will calculate the shutter time based on frame rate -- but there is no spinning mechanical shutter, it's still just setting an exposure time per frame.
