Super 8 camera accessories

Post by Hebeinpj » Sun Oct 15, 2017 5:18 am

Hello,

I am new to the forum and happy to be here! I am an animator and am trying to get into som ,stop motion. I have a chinon super 8 camera that will shoot at 1 grams per second. I am wondering if there is a remote or some special technique to shoot just one frame at a time. I apologize if this is the wrong category.

Thank you,

Peter

Some cameras have a single frame function. The mechanism depends on the camera, and may need a cable or remote release to operate. The manual for your camera will tell you if it is possible. I don’t know which model you have, but if it does 1 fps, it may well also do single frame.
