EX1 shooting mode

hi,

I just wanted to ask in which mode you are generally shooting ? My final result is mostly dvd and most people want fluid motion so I am hesitating between 1080 50i and 720 50p and reinterlacing in post after editing. Also what shutter speed are you mostly using at your shooting mode ?
I am generally used to use shutter 50 but the EX1 doesn't allow shutter 50 in 50i or 50p, only 60, 100 and up.

Thanks in advance,
David Arendt

If you want a shutter speed of 1/50th in 50i or 50P, just turn the shutter switch off.
When the shutter is off, it equals the frame rate.

Like you, my final format is DVD sales. Unlike television broadcast, blu-ray DVD players and HD TVs display a true 1080p image, I therefore always shoot 1080p.

HOWEVER, I edit in Adobe Premiere CS4 with Matrox Axio hardware. Matrox does not allow for 1080p @ 29.97 editing, but does allow for 1080p @ 23.98 editing . . . so I therefore shoot 1080p @ 23.98 with my EX-3, so as to be consistent. And I never have to render. It is pure 1080p @ 23.98 throughout the entire shooting and editing processes.

My regular DVDs look spectacular ... and the blu-rays even more so.

Good luck . . .

Compression to DVD workflow

My regular DVDs look spectacular ... and the blu-rays even more so.

Good luck . . .[/QUOTE]

You were saying that your DVD's look very good. I recently bought an EX1 and love the whole workflow. The only end of the workflow I am unfamiliar/nervous about is taking the project to DVD. Can you shed some light on the best way to get your project to a DVD without completely ruining the quality of your footage? I have had trouble with serious quality loss in the past and was hoping to fix this now that I am freelancing and my clients usually want the finished piece on DVD. I shoot mostly in 1080p 24p and edit in Final Cut Pro. Thanks!
