Paper Abstract

Motion picture cameras exist which take pictures at frame rates as high as 10,000 frames/second. Their development has been accomplished largely by invention, trial and error, and much hard work. They work very well, but the demands of scientific research require that frame rate be closely controlled so that accurate time measurements can be made when analyzing the photographic records. The purposes of this paper are to establish a mathematical model of the film transport system and to study the dynamics of the system.
