You can select 24p “advanced” (2:3:3:2) in the menu/camera setup submenu.
It changes the display on the LCD to an orange color.

By the way, what do you guys think about the clip itself and can someone please send me a link that I can upload footages so that every one can see it?

It seems there's something wrong with Putfile.

Any comments please?

Slow Motion

You may want to take a look at this neat bit of software for slow motion.

http://www.goodervideo.com

Instead of just slowing the frame rate down, it will reconstruct intermediate frames. I have found the best results are to film in interlaced (50i as I am in PAL land), then use combustion to de-interlace into frames (halving the speed), and then using this software. You could just use the software though!

Declan,
That is such a nice add-on to my slow mo plugins. Thanks. I see in their test footage how they use the software to reconstruct lost frames.

I found out that putting the shutter speed at 1/48th is not ideal thereby causing the strobing effects in my shots. So this brings the question, if 1/48th shutter speed is the industry standard when shooting on 35mm film camera, can I still go up to 1/120 +?.

I am sure some of us has noticed this also while shooting, if you pass in front of your camera and you are previewing on an external monitor, the whole area your camera is point at becomes brighter.


What's the reason for this please?

Hi Eniola. This is what can happen when you use Auto exposure. You can avoid it by selecting manual exposure or by using the Exposure Lock button. There is a similar (sort of) effect on the focus if you are using auto-focus and somebody walks past. Again, you can avoid this by slecting manual focus.

Richard, I selected the exposure lock but nothing came up.

I also think the issue is also an interlace problem.
How do I de-interlace the footage?

Hi Eniola. When you say "nothing came up", what exactly do you mean? The viewfinder should have an indicator that confirms the exposure lock is on. Are you not seeing this?

Regarding deinterlacing the footage, I'm not sure what software you are using for editing, but it should have an option to deinterlace. However, if your footage is progressive NTSC, what you need to look for is how to apply the correct pulldown.
