"Krasnogorsk-2", 1966-1977 gg.
Cinematographic apparatus is designed for the shooting
of films on 16mm color and black and white film with
single-sided or double-sided perforation.
The maximum frame size - 10,2 × 7,6 mm.
Recording frequency - 8, 12, 16, 24, 32 and 48 frames /
Charging system - cassette, the cassette of the film
stock - 30 m
The lens "Meteor-5-1" with a variable focal length of
17 mm to 70 mm and a relative aperture - 1:1.9.
Drive system - a spring, one platoon provides drawing
at least 5 m of the film.
Adjusting the exposure - with the help of
semi-automatic exposure meter running through the
shooting lens in the range of sensitivity of the film
from 8 to 250 units of GOST.
Obturator - bilobed mirror with the opening angle of
150 ∞ (2 × 75 ∞).
Reticle - parallax, working through the shooting lens.
The increase in the viewfinder - 10x
Diopter eyepiece - ± 5 diopters.
Weight (without case and accessories) - about 3.0 kg.
A total of 15080 made such cameras.
Issue I - Camera Black
Issue Ia - camera gray
The main elements of a semi-automatic aperture setting
are: galvanometer with an arrow, photo resistor to
regulate current in the galvanometer, depending on the
brightness of the subject, and mercury oxide battery of
two elements of the RC-53 to power the circuit.
Filming unit operates at frequencies of six shooting,
as well as time-lapse photography of the cable release.
The normal frequency of shooting - 16 frames per second.
Furthermore, the apparatus provides a slow filming or
frequency 8 to 12 / s and increased at 24, 32 or 48
frames / sec.
When shooting with a slow rate of movement on the
screen will be faster in 1.5 or 2 times.
When shooting at 24, 32, or 48 frames / sec on the
screen will move slower, respectively, 1.5, 2 or 3
Each frequency corresponds to a certain shooting shutter
speed (see table).
The frequency of shooting a / s 8 12 16 24 32 48
Exposure, sec 1/19 1/29 1/38 1/58 1/76 1/116
The complete unit includes filters GS-17, GS-12, GS-10
Yellow filter GS-17 eliminates the effect of atmospheric
haze, enhances the contrast of distant objects, and
allocates the cloud increases the contrast in the
shadows. Correcting filter GS-12 improves the tone
reproduction in natural light and is used in the filming
of genre scenes and portraits of the visual brightness
of blue, green and yellow objects. GS-10 filter reduces
the influence of ultraviolet rays, is used to overcome
the impact of the weak aerial haze when filming
landscapes. The neutral density filter HC-4x is used in
cases when the brightness of the subject is very high
and the arrow galvanometer can not be combined with
cut-frame viewfinder even with full lens diaphragm.
