Hero2 on the motorway

Hi All,

I am planning to shoot a convoy of wedding cars on a 45 minute motorway journey and then incorporate the video with the wedding video. I currently shoot everything on my 5DMK3 and 1080p 25fps and I see the go pro does the same. My only concern is the slow motion, do I need to shoot at a lower resolution and at a higher frame rate to get better slow motion?

I shoot at 720p 50fps and then use that footage with my 1080p blu-ray discs which I give to clients, will the quality difference be noticeable as I would have to upscale that section of the video.

Re: Hero2 on the motorway

Simply shoot some footage with both cameras yourself, and see if you are happy with the match. There will obviously be a fair difference in the quality between the 2 cameras, but in daylight/good light you should get away with it. Shoot at 25
