Question about Horizon Perfekt Film Camera
The shutter speed is controlled by the width of the slit exposing the film. So, the lens will swing at the same speed when set at 1/500 or 1/60 (White setting), therefore it appears on the outside that the shutter speed has not changed. The swing has only 2 speeds, White fast, Yellow slow, selected by the switch on the left beside the rewind knob.
To confirm that the width of the slit is changing (actual shutter speed), open the back and fire the shutter on Yellow 2 (half second), you will see the slit is fully open as the lens swings. Next try Yellow 8, you will see the slit is less than half open, so it exposes the film for a shorter time by having a narrower slit , not faster swing.
This is the same principle in many cameras with curtain shutter.
I hope this answers your question.
