Super Slo Mo with EX1?
on Apr 3, 2014 at 4:09:02 pm

I need to shoot a super slow mo shot of a 2X4 being shot out of a cannon at an impact resistent window.

Will my EX1 do this if I shoot at 720P 60? For the slowest possible shot what shutter settings would we use? Do I also need to purchase Twixtor?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Use the slow/quick motion record feature on your EX1. Set the frame size to 720 and the frame rate to 60fps. This will give you a 50% reduction in speed which actually looks better than recording a straight 720p 60 clip that you slow down in post. I wouldn't call half speed super slow mo. but it's better than nothing. For an even slower shot you would need something like Twixtor to convert it, but any modern NLE should make a half decent slower shot out of something that's already at 50% speed.

No, no such feature as super slow mo with this camera. You can rent Sony's FS100U cam which has this feature up to 640 fps. Or if you have the budget there is always the Phantom at 2000 fps
