I'm looking for a power source for my Eclair NPR 16mm camera and I think I'm starting to get a rough idea of what to look for (still open to suggestions tho) but one key question:

 

does a higher frame rate require more volts?

 

The manuals I've seen online suggest a 12 volt, 3-5 Amh battery to power the Perfectone motor but I've seen discussions about the motor stopping as soon as the FPS rate goes up.  Someone who appeared more knowledgeable than myself  said the higher frame rate would require higher voltage.  Possibly up to 15 volts.  However I've also read discussions where people warn against using a battery or power source that is rated higher than the suggested voltage for the motor.

 

Any thoughts or experiences with this subject?

 

Thanks
