The framing rate for moving film has always been much more limited, a few thousand per second, limited by the strength of the film base.
As far as I can see each Rapatronic took a single still image so it wasn't a cine camera as such.

there's interesting stuff about the 'Rapatronic' camera here
The way they explain about 'the shutter with no moving parts' makes it sound deceptively simple, I wonder why it didn’t catch on in other film cameras at the time
Don't Nuclear explosions give out an electromagnetic pulse? Seems a magnetic shutter wouldn't be that great in that situation but then I guess they are filming from far, far, away?
