5D 30P and 25P mix no ?

Hi there,

I'm going to do a promo video using the 5D and (prefereably) a PAL xh-a1

I'm in PAL land btw but the promo video will only be used with laptops and webs, so I'm planning to deliver in 30P.

The thing is, the promo will include quiet a bit of time-lapse going on and we want to comfortably shoot the time-lapse for more than 12 minutes. So this is where the "video" camera comes in. I'd love to shoot this time-lapse with the XH-A1 25F since I own one, but I'm not sure whether it will cut nicely with the rest of 30P footage from the 5D in the 30P timeline.

What do you guys think???

Any suggestion will be much appreciated. Thanks

Also, where is the line drawn for the ISO for the 5D?

I've tried 1250 and am pretty happy with it but how far can I go?? cause I haven't tried putting my test shots onto HD display so I can't really tell.

Thanks in advance

Santo

I would think you could get better time lapse using the 5D and an intervalometer taking actual photos instead of video, no time limit there.

Evan is right. The 5D2 does awesome timelapses.

I'm using the Aputure AP-TR3C, which is inexpensive and works great.

For smooth timelapses, you will want to run long shutter times. I recommend a strong ND filter to keep from overexposing.

Susanto, if you have access to an iPhone 3G and a laptop/netbook you can get an inexpensive intervalometer with this software and the 5D Mark II.

Susanto, basically time lapse is not straight video, but single frames put together with each single frame being over some amount of time. For that reason the 5D would be perfectly fine taking individual frames, and with a 21MP image, you'll have huge files to work with (images that is). I'd go with the 5D for time lapse.
