Part Nine - Converting from film shutter angles to digital workings

Some cameras such as the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and 4K camera do not express their shutter speeds as you may currently be used to, such as in fractions of a second, like 1/30th, 1/50th, 1/100th of a second, etc. They are instead expressed more like the traditional motion picture standard of shutter angles like 180 degrees, and the normal 172.8 degree shutter.
