I was wanting to know if the Bolex EBM 16mm camera will shoot instantly when you press the trigger like say the super 8mm cameras, or will it take a few frames or seconds to get up to speed.

 

Thanks

John

No it's not instant. There will be some fogged frames between every shot.

Not to hijack the thread but this is fairly closely related (I think)... I have an EL which I suspect would have the same "issue".  Where this concerns me is that I was planning on shooting some in-camera cross fades (believe that's correct term) by using a de-clicked manual focus lens (Nikon Series E 50mm) to fade to black by closing the aperture.  At that point, I would use reverse to go back X number of frames (perhaps 4 seconds worth), then shoot while fading in from black by opening the aperture.  I'm planning on doing a test prior to my actual shoot but what might I expect to see due to the fogging as things come up to speed?  Since I'll be having the 16mm film telecined & will be editing digitally, it may be a non-issue as I'll be able to remove a couple of frames at each end of the fade.
