Drop Frame or Non Drop Frame?

Hi All,

Probably a dumb question but I'm new to shooting with the GH4 and DSLR style cameras. Anyways here it is. If I'm shooting in progressive do I need to set my camera to drop frame or does it even matter?

Thanks in advance,
Salvatore

Re: Drop Frame or Non Drop Frame?

From a practical perspective it shouldn't matter.
However, if you are recording with multiple cameras (or a separate audio recording) you should probably make sure that they are all set the same!
Of course if your client asks specifically for either drop or non-drop you should comply as well...
