Overcrank footage on A1?

I can't seem to find this online anywhere, or on this forum either, but can you overcrank the speed on an A1 to achieve smoother slow-motion in post. In other words, can you shoot in 48fps?

My inability to find any info on this has me thinking that the A1 cannot do this.

You can't shoot 48fps on the A1/G1. That said, there are several methods to approximate a decent overcrank/slomo effect with this or any other 60i camera. Here's one:

Also a good slow motion plugin for FCP (as well as many other cool plugins) here:

With either method, using at least a 1/120 shutter will help get the detail you need for a good slomo.

No you can not over crank the A1 footage but if you shoot at a higher apprature
250/sec+ it would give you nicer slow motion in post.

hope this helps
