Abstract : The patent relates to apparatus for automatically scanning processed film and is directed more particularly to apparatus for controlling the timing of the various phases of a cycle during which a predetermined number of frames of film are passed over a scanning silt at a scanning speed and a different predetermined number of frames are passed over the silt at a rate called the slew speed, which is faster than the scanning speed. An object of this invention is to provide a novel timing mechanism for a slew-scan cycle. Another object of this invention is to provide a mechanism for controlling the speed at which processed film passes a scanning slit.
