the original analog image to digital signal method applied mechanically to digitize to analog,this odd shutter design is not eggexactly compact in fact the camera needed to be cut extended and wrapped around it. i hope the effect of moving objects in the frame will have the affect of digital signal breakdown  .inspired by the early tv inventions. please bear in mind that a few weeks have passed between me being ready to do the first test roll and writing the build.also the effects of the fumes from the fillr were not doing any favoursand all the dust has made my keyboard temperamental. . i did a photoshop mock up of the sort of thing i was expecting and the actual result from initial testing.

Step 2: Function

this is how i think i wired it. oops just spotted a mistake! see image note.
so a disk with a slit is attached ti another panel with a horizontal slit as they cross the film is exposed, when they dont the whole thing ebbs down a bit. when it reaches the ottom a limit switch cuts the power. the shutter is a switch which reverses the polarity then the system goes in reverse.

the paper clip is the basis of the cam. the cam operates a switch when the rotating slit is away from the horizontal slit, the switch advances the up down motion. the spring thing is a slip device that was attached to the motor,retrieved from a camcorder.

Step 5: The switch
