I think 1/250 shutter would be just fine to eliminate motion blur for this software. My test was done simply by pointing my V1 at a ceiling fan set to high. To my eyes, the blades are a complete blur. The V1 is able to eliminate motion blur from the blades without noticeable distortion. Only a very fast-moving object in your scene could generate any warping and then only at a very fast shutter speed. I really can't imagine any real-world reason the rolling shutter of the V1 could ever be a problem.

Brown Lines?

Hi Lizi,

I have a post above about some weird digital distortion (which on second thoughts kind of appear as lines) apppearing in highlights that are over exposed. Just wondering how hot the sections were that made these lines appear? This was shooting at standard shutters.

I just shot my son's hockey game the other night under the mercury vapor lighting, shutter speed at 60 and the rolling thick brown lines are there! They are faint but they are there. I was not shooting at 250 or higher so it appears to be a problem under certain lighting conditions. Other times I've shot in the same place and have not noticed them.
