Best slow-mo settings shooting 720p
on Nov 7, 2009 at 7:51:44 am

I have a shoot this weekend where I will want some slow-motion shots and I'm trying to select my workflow.

I'll be shooting 720p on my HPX-500, so I can shoot 720pN24 at 60fps for built-in slow motion, or I can shoot 720p60 and conform to 24p later. Anybody have good reasons why one or the other is better quality?

This is a live event and I may only have the opportunity to shoot some things once, so shooting 720p60 would seem to give me more flexibility in post - allowing me to drop frames down to 24p or conform to 24p for slow motion. A drawback to this approach (besides the extra post time) is I'll be seeing a fluid 60p image and I'll have to remember to keep moves slow to avoid judder issues that I can't see (yet).

In this case, would I want to set the shutter to 1/48, since I intend to use everything at 24p?

Of course, I'll have a lot more run time shooting 720pN24 - but I'll have to set up a scene file to switch to slow motion and make those decisions on the fly, and anything I later wish was slow motion will have to be done in software.

Honestly I can do this either way, so once again, is there a perceived or proven quality difference between the two?

Thanks much!

Neither is better quality. Both are equal.

I have done both and like the shooting 720p60 so that I can have the choice of slow motion or regular speed.

Thanks Shane - what about shutter speed? Does 1/48 make sense if you're shooting 60p but intending to use 24p?

Well, I'm not sure. I'm more of a post guy. I had the camera for a while but I don't recall what settings are best.

I have it stet it to 180 degrees
If you shoot 24p =1/48th sec. At 60p =1/120
