Shutter speed for overcrank..?

I was just wondering -- if you were gonna do an overcrank shoot of 30fps to 24fps, would you recommend a shutter speed of 60 or 50..?

The difference is pretty subtle. Both will work.

Personally, I would use 1/60 to be a 180 degree purist - unless you are shooting in a 50 Hz country under fluorescent lights. In that case, use 1/50.

By the same token, shoot at 1/60 in the US under fluorescent lights at both 24 and 30p.

Well, so am I -- but was wondering mabye 1/50 would be more "pure" 180 deg for a 30 to 24 overcrank..?

Shutter speed on a 180 degree film camera is a function of frame rate, so a 180 shutter at 30 fps gives you a 1/60 exposure. Based on this, I typically use 1/60 when I shoot 30 fps for overcrank.

But one great thing about the 5D vs. film: it's free to test!

Good luck--
