Built on aicw principles, and mounted between lenses.
Applicable to the smallest practicable 'cameras. An all
round shutter for all-round work, the most efficient speed
shutter in use today.
The fault with the old iris diaphram shutters is that
the 'illumination is poor, and the result blurred; the old
focal plane makes sectional exposure necessary, ie3ulting
'' When the speed of the focnl plane is doubled, tho band
pf light that tiavels over the plnte is only 1-2 as wide, and
any point is only one-half the timo exposed, resultim; in il
lumination only 1-4 as strong as before. The MULTI
SPEED SHUTTER causes the tame amount of light to hit
the plate every time. There is verv little los3 of dcnnity.
