Hello,
I was hoping to get some thoughts on a strange affect on some footage I recently got back.
During most parts of the 100ft there is a ghosting or double exposure affect, initially I thought it was just the bright parts of the image, but it seems throughout to be the same, and it fluctuates a little.
The stock is 7293, hand processed and pro scanned. I had the same stock processed that I had used in 2 other cameras that same day, and that came back fine.

One person I already asked suggested lens but was not entirely sure.

Anyone see this before?

I've seen this before in an Eclair NPR that had been converted to Super 16 and used regular 16mm Zeiss lenses at f/22.

 

 

But that camera had other issues.

Thanks for the replies, it has also been suggested to me the claw may not be engaging all sprockets leading to a weave effect. Looks like I better pull her down and adjust.
Cheers

You can check the shutter timing easily enough by marking the film and watching through the lens port as you inch the camera over. If the timing is out you will see the film move before or after the shutter covers the gate aperture.
