Shutter speed in 24p on NX5U
on Feb 14, 2012 at 11:26:39 pm

Quick question... A clients wants me to shoot in 24p with my NX5U. The camera automatically adjusts the shutter speed to 48. I get why it's doing that, but I'm concerned that the image will be too jittery at that slow of a shutter.

Is it best to keep it there or manually set it back to 60?

Thanks much,
Eric

Eric,

It is trying to tell you the slowest that makes sense.

If you shoot at 60i, the slowest that makes sense is 1/60th.
If you shoot at 24p, 1/24th would be way too slow, so they default to telling you that 1/48 is the slowest that makes sense.

However, you can set it to anything you want.
If you are shooting slow moving objects, the 1/48 gives a pleasing motion blur that is movie ish.

If you are shooting high speed sports like your kid's hockey game, you want to be shooting more like 1/180 if you ever want to get a frame grab or do slow motion with it.

Thanks John, makes sense. I was just think that since the 1/48 is directly proportionate to the 24 frame rate that maybe 1/60 would produce jittering or something like that.

Thanks very much!
Eric
