Could someone please clarify this for me as I can't find the answer anywhere on-line.

Is there a setting for shooting HD at 23.976 in the A7R3?

I can't find it in the menu.

Under "File Format", I chose XAVC-S-HD. I then select "Record Setting" and my option is 24P 50M.

TY,

J

Check the files you shoot--I'll bet you a beer at NAB that Sony, like everyone else, is using 24p to denote 23.976. You have to get up to the FS7 (or maybe FS5?) to get the option to shoot true 24p--they don't do that on the alpha series.

Yep, Blaise beat me to the same exact suggestion. Throw a clip on a timeline and look at its properties. I II will bet anything that it's 23.976. You're typically only going to find true 24 fps on higher-end real cinema cameras, so I'm betting that's the case with what they're calling 24p.

Does that mean I get dibs on the beer bet?

Shooting 23.976 is okay though, as a lot of people do not care about the difference between that and 24, at least I don't think most do.

Noooo no no. It's a subtle but very important difference.

You should only shoot true 24fps if you are planning to do a real film-out, strike a real celluloid film print (if anyone actually does that anymore), are editing in an existing true 24fps project, or are mixing with other film that has been scanned at true 24fps.

For virtually ALL electronic applications, editing, delivery, whatever... use 23.976fps.

Well I like hearing that.

Probably because it is so rare.
