EX1 + Pal/Ntsc - 25/30fps
on Jun 21, 2009 at 1:21:22 pm

I have a little dilemma on which formats and settings to choose.
I'm shooting a corporate documentary in three countries - Atlanta, Iceland and China so that means one is 60Hz and two 50Hz. I come from a PAL country and I have never done any NTSC.

The camera I will be using the most is the Sony Ex1 but I would like to use the 5D as an extra camera to shoot the "cooler" stuff like DOF shoots etc.
End results will most likely only be played back on computers/projected and Internet stream.

Thoughts going though my minds are :
- Should I shoot 25fps and convert the 5D's 30fts to 25
- Should I shoot 30fps on both cameras and choose different shutter speeds to balance the flickering in 60&50Hz
- I am probably missing out something obvious :)

What would be my ideal settings to match the two cameras and three countries having the 60&50Hz in mind?

oh..yes, and I am supposed to start shooting on Monday :)

Thanks !
