I am aiming to shoot a music video in the new year on my canon 7D. It is a personal project and I wanting to do a mix of slow motion footage as well as normal footage. I wanted to shoot the standard footage at 24 fps for the filmic look. I know that the 7D will only allow you to shoot 50fps and 60fps at 720p so I had prepared that I would have to sacrifice full HD but have come to realise that the 7D doesn't seem to allow you to shoot 720p at 24fps or 25fps for that matter. It only seems to allow you to shoot 720p at 50 and 60fps.
Is there a work around for this? For example, is there away I can shoot the standard scenes at 1080p at 24fps and down sample to 720p? I am very new to DSLR video so any advice would be really appreciated?
Yes, there are many ways to convert 1080p video to 720p. You might check out MPEG Streamclip for a free solution but many editing systems have this function built into their export or "share" options...so nothing to worry about
