A project log for A Spring-Drive Digital Movie Camera

Digitize a vintage spring-drive 8mm camera. Not for the sake of convenience, but for the enjoyment of video recording.

In 8mm film cameras, the shutter timing is linked to the frame feed of the film. When controlling the image sensor, the shutter timing must be detected in some way to capture an image. The captured image data is later connected and converted to video.
First, we created a time-lapse tool that uses test opencv to take a picture at a specified timing, convert it to a movie, and then output it.

Looks good.
