How do I expose the film correctly with the Motorizer?

The Spinner Motorizer is specially designed for indoor conditions and outdoor shadow conditions. The relative shutter speed of the Spinner Motorizer is 1/4 second. That means:

  • If you are using ISO 400 film, f/8 (cloudy aperture), your film will exposure correctly under LV6 — ordinary indoor situations.
  • If you are using ISO 100 film, f/16 (sunny aperture, your film will exposure correctly under LV10 — outdoor shadow situations.

To make it simple:

  • Use ISO400 or higher sensitivity film if you want to shoot indoors
  • Use ISO100 or lower sensitivity film if you are shooting outdoor shadows during daytime.

When in sunny conditions, it’s recommended that you use your original Spinner 360° handle, as this is perfectly designed for daytime shooting. In case you want to shoot in sunny weather with the Spinner Motorizer, you may buy a 52mm ND filter and place it in front of the Camera Lens <19> for best results.
