[Diego Barraza] "There seems to be some disagreement about shutter speed, Todd is saying low shutter speed i.e. 50th/sec and David from aerial academy is saying high shutter speed i.e. 1/1000Sec."

Well David is right that he says that would yield a good he said, "photograph." As in a still photograph. I'm not sure he knows that you are talking about motion photography.

That high shutter speed will give you sharp images, yes... sharp images that, when stitched together and played back at 24 frames a second... will look very sharp and staccato and stuttery. As I said in my earlier post, if nice smooth motion is what you are after, you should shoot at a more "normal" shutter speed to give you the proper motion blur that your brain needs to interpret everything as nice and fluid. And in the case of 24fps shooting, "normal" would be, yes about a 1/50th shutter.
