Animation and Time Lapse Motor

The Revolution Model 121 is a "generic" 1-to-1 time lapse and single-frame animation motor that you adapt to your camera.

As long as it has a single-frame advance knob, or inching shaft, this model can probably be adapted to it. Many cameras (such as the Michell 16mm and 35mm) have an output shaft specifically designed for a single-frame motor. If your camera has a 2:1 shaft (two exposures for every 1 rotation), we can supply it for 2-to-1 operation as well.

The motor can be a size Nema 23 (shown) or the smaller Nema 17. The cable length to motor can be a few inches, or as long as many feett.


A short cord and 6' long curly cord to connect the control box and the driver box are included. Even longer cords are available as well.

Here's the Revolution Operating Manal PDF.

Below are the dimensions in inches for the NEMA 23 size motor. It has a 1/4" shaft.

It can also be supplied with a smaller NEMA 17 motor. The NEMA 17 dimensions below are in mm. Single-shaft and dual-shaft variants are available in both sizes.

If you already have a camera with a digital motor attached, or an optical printer, the driver box can be hooked up that motor as well.
