EX1 and helicopter filming.

I'm due to film a helicopter taking off and landing soon.Can anyone give me advice on what shutter speed to use and should i use progressive or interlaced.I don't know how many takes i'll be able to get so obviously i'd like to get it right first time.Any other info that would be helpful regarding camera settings will also be appreciated.
Thanks,Paul.

Other than some special effects perhaps, I don't believe in format changing each time to "suit" objects being filmed. I personally like progressive, and would only change it to 1080i (or even 720p) for really fast action, like car racing.

Other than that, why not film a helicopter in the same format as anything else? I mean, use the format that suits your personal taste best.

Care to share a taste of that? Seeing some actual sample footage of filming moving aircraft would really be nice.

Brad I will be glad to show some heilcopter landing footage when I get home on the 22nd. I only have iPhone access on this shoot.

I shoot the same 1080 30p while flying in helicopters. Today I am shooting 720 30/60p for some slow mo on my flight. An 720 60p for a test.

Go to the forum I think it is called overland/underwater where we are discussing helicopter shooting. Sorry I am not sure how to link on the iPhone yet.
