I was wanting to know if the Canon Scoopic starts as soon as you hit the trigger and stops the same way, like a super 8mm camera would do therefore no exposed frames at the end of your shot or the start of the next. I know that a lot of electric cameras need a few frames to get up to speed thus having this over/under exposed at the end of each shot. Anyone on here who actually owns one and has shot a few rolls of film through it, could probably give me the answer to this.

 

Thanks

John

My first film school had us shoot on the Canon Scoopic; loved that camera.

 

It needs a second to get up to speed, and by a second I literally mean a second.

 

The camera isn't too great a syncing sound; it's mostly 24fps, but not consistent.

 

I notice you're in AZ; are you attending SCC?

Hi AJ

Thanks for you post,I do not attend any school or college here is AZ...when you said SCC did you  mean Scottsdale Community College? Can you remember when using the Canon did you get any kind of flash at the start of a new shot? under/over exposed?
