New Product – Integrated Capping Shutter

Mark Roberts Motion Control is proud to announce the release of our latest product, the Integrated Capping Shutter (ICS) for Fries Mitchell cameras. Together with the Mitchell S35 these cameras are used daily all over the world for special effect shooting and for animation purposes because they provide superior registration and alignment of the film, as well as being able to shoot from 0 to 120 FPS. The camera is popular because it is fairly low cost for a 35mm camera, but it is also one of the highest quality and reliable cameras available. Using different lens mounts all popular lenses can be mounted including BNCR, Nikon, and Arri-PL. The one disadvantage with the Fries Mitchell has been the fact that for animation or time-lapse, light could pass the shutter during the long periods between exposures and therefore render the camera useless for such work.

Now though with this Integrated Capping Shutter no light can pass to the film between frames. The ICS is built into the door of the camera and using a high speed blade just in front of the film no light can pass when the capping shutter is closed. Unlike external capping shutters it works with any lens and does not need special lens attachments nor does it take up any room in front of the camera which may be unfeasible for macro work.
