I saw some work at an art show last night that reminded me that I'm interested in trying out Redscale at some point.
And so I was browsing around online for redscale stuff today, and came across a neat comparison of different exposures for redscale.
And in the description, the photographer mentioned trying to be quick about getting all the shots taken, so that other factors in the scene didn't change.
And that's when I got to wondering:
Does anyone know of any 35mm cameras that might somehow be controllable by a computer, such that a series of, say, 25 photos could be taken in very quick succession, but each with different shutter and/or aperture?
(For that matter, is that type of control even available on DSLRs, at, say, the maximum burst rate of the camera? I know you can trigger the shutter, but haven't shot tethered enough to know if you can control settings -- I'm guessing so, at least with the camera manufacturer's software.)
I can think of a number of scenarios (redscale testing being an obvious one, but there are others) where it might be nice to control a camera in this way. So, are there any cameras that do it?
As far as I can tell from their website, Canon is no longer making film SLRs (though see note below). Nikon still has two offerings (the FM10, which clearly wouldn't do it, and the F6, which I don't see any strong indications would have this either, though that'd be the one that would, of the two), and I don't immediately see anything on Pentax or Olympus sites, either.
Oh wait, but there is, perhaps, a Canon option! I got to it circuitously, but the EOS-1v seems to have some software that comes with it, called EOS LINK ES-E1. It's unclear to me, though, whether this could be used for the purpose I'm describing.
Does anyone know?
It certainly looks interesting... I don't expect to buy that body for something like this, but I could see renting it, maybe (and my local camera store seems to have it available for that, at a price that strikes me as reasonable). It'd be nice to know in advance, though, if something like this is possible. And/or if there are any other cameras that might have a chance of having this feature.
