First time shooting with a C300 this coming Friday. I'll be recording 1080, 50mbps and have to do some over cranking at 50fps. Is the shutter best set at 1/100sec when doing this? I realize I have to drop down to 720 in order to up the frame rate to 50fps.

[Simon Cox] " Is the shutter best set at 1/100sec when doing this?"

Yes, if you want a "normal motion look."

Usually the look that most people are after is the same as if you were shooting film with a 180° shutter... so yep, in that case 50fps would be an exposure of 1/100th (one over twice the frame rate).

That shutter speed will give you the right amount of motion blur to make the footage look as smooth as one would expect. A slower shutter speed will introduce more blur and give you a bit of a surreal look. A faster shutter will give you that choppy staccato "narrow shutter" look that seems to be so popular when they want to make action movies look more "actiony."

Great, thanks Todd for the swift response. I'll be shooting kids participation in different sporting events.
