Subject: [Leica] OT: 16mm projector shutter speed
From: bourgeois and biblical <>

i have an old 16mm projector that i got at a thrift store.  i plan to 
try using it to light some nudes--i'm going to try projecting a movie 
onto my model.  i'm windering how to be sure i get the right amount of 
exposure, since my light source will be flickering.  i'm *thinking* the 
shutter speed on a movie projector is 30 fps.  if that's correct, then 
i'm thinking shooting at 1/30 will guarantee me getting only one 
illumination per frame.  is that right?
