HVX200 and blur when panning
on Feb 3, 2012 at 8:08:04 pm

I have tried to do some research as to why when shooting in 24p or any film mode, the HVX200 has so much motion blur, more than other cams. Is there something wrong with the camera or did Panasonic simply go overboard with the shutter thang?

What settings are the best for shooting films? That's something else that seems to vary among boards I read on. I mean all of the settings too. I have tried many without getting really good results that I have seen posted on sites like Vimeo.

Mind you, this is the 200 and not the 200A.

Thanks,
Phil

Doesn't matter whether it is the HVX200 or the A version, it has everything to do with what you have the shutter set at. So what do you have it set at?

Best,

I've tried all different settings. Do you mean the fraction or degree angle? I have tried both. That's why I'm asking what the settings should be.

Thanks,

Depending on what I'm shooting or what look I'm going for, I'll adjust the shutter up or down of course. But in most cases I stay somewhere between 180 and 220. I find I end up with rather clean results. I suppose you could go quite low - not too sure how far, i've never gone too low, but you'll get sharper images. Just remember the lower you go, the more you'll have to open the iris, and you'll also get more of a strobing effect with faster motion.

Degrees will give you more of a consistent motion blur across frame rates. I would concur that a 180 degree shutter would be a good place to start.

But what should the other settings be? In other words:

720p 24p 180 degrees, what should the fraction be? 1/24, 1/48. 1/60 or...?

Thanks,
Phil

When you're using syncro scan, it's only in degrees. It's either or - but not both. Here's an interesting thread that might help:

You generally double the shooting frame rate to get the "standard" shutter speed, so shooting 24p would be a 1/48th shutter, which is the same as shooting at a 180 degree film shutter.
