Shutter Timing

Shutter Timing


Shutter timing is the shutter speed adjustment, slit width. 

  • The cameras lens is set wide open and its shutter speed is set to give the correct exposure for the Light Boxes Ev setting.  
  • The cameras histogram will center if the shutter speed is correct.  
  • If the histogram doesn't center, the camera needs a Shutter Timing Adjustment.


  • Although shutter timing is overall and meant to bring the high speed into adjustment, fine tweaking the timing allows some linearity.
  • The forward and trail edges of the histogram indicate curtain travel time balance.
  • With increasing frequency replacing the shutter requires high-speed adjustment
