finding the 720x30p video format on the Sony ex1r
on Sep 2, 2010 at 11:48:04 pm

Hello,
I am a new filmmaker using the NTSC format.I have recently purchased the sony ex1-r. I am currently viewing the Doug Jensen video to learn how to use it. I would like to do special effects such as fast and slow motion but I am unable to do so either because my camera does not have the following functions or I do not know how to find them:

1.I cannot find the video format for slow motion which is supposed to be 720 x 30 p. Is this under another number that I do not know about?

2.When I go to my menu to choose the interval record or frame record functions I am unable to choose them because they are not highlighted.

I appreciate your help on this matter.

Andresa

[Andresa Julien] "1.I cannot find the video format for slow motion which is supposed to be 720 x 30 p. Is this under another number that I do not know about?"

To set up for overcrank (slow-motion):

  • 1. Go to the OTHERS menu and choose HD/SD Mode: make sure it's set to HD
  • 2. Go to the OTHERS menu and choose Video Format: HQ 1280/30p
  • 3. Go to the CAMERA SET menu and choose: S & Q Motion: choose HQ 1280/30p and frame rate 60
  • 4. Exit the menu and press the S & Q button on the left side of the camera. Choose Yes on the screen.
  • 5. You'll notice that now your audio meters have a slash through them. Now you're ready to shoot.

[Andresa Julien] "2.When I go to my menu to choose the interval record or frame record functions I am unable to choose them because they are not highlighted"

If the S & Q button on the left side of your camera is active (blue light) the Interval and Frame record menu items will be greyed out.

Thank You very much for your response. I have tried those steps in the exact order. However, when I press the S& Q button on the left side. There is a message on the screen that reads "Cannot Proceed" and the light does not light up. What might be the issue?

Okay, I tried to duplicate your "Cannot Proceed" issue by trying various things but I was still able to get the S & Q button to light up every time. So go to the OTHERS menu and hit RESET ALL at the top of the list. Then go through the procedure once more. See if that solves it. BTW, after hitting RESET ALL you'll have to input your date and time again (I think).

Not that I know of. The first place I checked was Vortex Media and I didn't see anything for either the 320 or the 350. I also just phoned my local Sony broadcast supply place and they don't know of anything, although they're gong to check around.

Wouldn't that be nice. Actually, within our local video association there's a few of us that critique each others' docos and that helps us to get better and also keeps everyone involved fresh and motivated.
