Adjusting the shutter speed for slow-mo
on Aug 5, 2015 at 5:57:10 pm

Hi all,

I have a question regarding how to adjust the shutter speed correctly, when filming for slow-mo.

When filming a regular speed scene I'm using the 1/50 with 25fps, but from what I learned it's better to use a higher shutter speed if I'm planning on slowing it down, so I'll get a sharper frames - right?
So my question is how do I determine the right shutter speed, and also, if I want to use the same scene for both slow-mo and regular speed, what is the best shutter settings?

Hope I'm clear enough :)

Thanks for the help!

Depending on your editing system, I would shoot something like 30p or 60p at about 125 to 250th shutter. Then export the frames as still image PNG or TIF sequence. Then import the image sequence as 25p, more frames per second will help animate the slo-mo better. Slowing down 25p will get pretty choppy the lower you go.

Do some tests on the shutter thing, to see how much blur you are going to get based on the action in the scene.
