Shooting with 2 different cameras - Resolution & FPS
on Feb 13, 2013 at 12:25:00 am

I'm going on a shoot with a T1i and T3i. Wondering which resolution and fps I should shoot in.

Options:
T1i - 1920 @ 20fps or 1280 @ 30fps
T3i - 1920 @ 30fps or 1920 @ 24fps or 1280 @60fps

Any ideas on which would be the best option so that my video looks as close a match as possible? I will be filming a workshop at a resort with many interviews.

Thanks!

Keep the frame rate similar, no matter what. If you're happy with 720p, then shoot both at 720p30.

Get the Free Comprehensive Guide to Rigging ANY Camera - one guide to rig them all - DSLRs to Reds to the Arri Alexa.

Agreed, matching different frame rates to look the same is nearly impossible if not impossible due to motion resolution, and other factors in the image. Always match frame rates as well as progressive/interlace. So in this case, 30p (29.97) will be the way to go. Work in a 720p project as it will be easier to make 1920 look like 720 than the other way around, but depending on delivery (size - YouTube, broadcast, etc.) you may not notice the difference at all.

Thank you both! That's what I thought but wanted to make sure!
