How to achieve "Choppy" effect on HVR-Z1E

Hi all.

As referenced here, you can set a camera to achieve a choppy, chaotic effect. It was also done in 28 Days Later and on the commentary, Danny Boyle referred to it as a "dropped frame" effect. I used to have an XL-2 and could reproduce this effect easilly, but I have an HVR-Z1E now, and, for the life of me, can't seem to replicate this.

It may be becuase I've forgotten how to do it, but even following the steps listed in the thread I linked to doesn't make it work either. Is there something that I'm missing here? It was a key effect I was planning for a shot so I hope there's something that I can do to make it work.

Thanks,

Matt

To clarify;

I've just gone and borrowed my Uni's XL2. I can achieve the choppy effect (when the camera is panning/moving at speed) with ease by turning the shutter speed up. You can see it very clearly in the viewfinder.

On the Z1E, I do the same thing, and the effect is no-where near as pronounced, no matter how fast I set the shutter speed. The viewfinder just looks largely normal.

What's the difference here?

Thanks.
