Default A WHAT shutter?

I am trying to think of the name of a strip of gels (primary colors of light) sandwiched between two black blocks - and a holder. Where, when you use a Bulb setting for your shutter speed and drop the shutter, you get pretty much a normal picture everywhere except for where there's movement - then you get it in primary colors - an Andy Warhol-type effect. You can also do this by doing three multiple exposures using three different filters. Help!

I can't help you (I am very light/flash ignorant) but I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Do you know of any examples of this effect online?

That might go a long way to getting your point across. I ask because it might be possible to create the effect without the color and then add the color in photoshop.

I answered my own question - it's a "Harris Shutter" and if I can find any info on them, I will post. I first read about it in Kodak's Joy of Photography and it looks so neat I have to try it!

Here's a good description of what I meant:

Default Can you do it with software

You can use layering with some software and software also allows you to filter images. Could you take one picture and then use filtering. Then take another picture with movement and add that layer to it with the different filters?

I have to admit I read the example but it is kind of unclear of what youre trying to accomplish with the final image. It would be good to actually see a photo example of the end result.

My Pentax *ist D has multiple exposure capacity. I saw a pic in the Joy of PHotography and it is neat. Unfortunately, I haven't found any on the internet. That's OK - I know what I'm doing now and will try to make one. Thought I could buy one, if I only knew the name!

you mean that you can expose the same photo many times?as you do with film cameras, where the film stays at the same spot?
i thought that could be achieved only on slrs.
The multiple exposure lever on these cameras disengages the film advance mechanism after the first exposure and stops the frame counter. So you can repeatedly expose the same frame, and this procedure can be repeated as often as you like. After the last exposure, the film can be advanced as usual.
