In Topic: 25p in 60 Hz country

10 November 2018 - 09:45 AM

"Well the thing is I have tried on a Canon 5D III to shoot PAL with a shutter speed of 1/60 to get rid of the lighting flicker but the results were not good and only switching over to NTSC eliminated the problem."

 

!/.50th or 1/60th shutter.. no one in the world would know the difference .. at 30p..  I think something is wrong with your setting sir..

 

Dont change the frame rate to get rid of light fixture flicker .. just the shutter speed/angle..

If its light flicker just use your shutter.. I live in a country with the opposite..NTSC TV the whole country but both 50Hz AND 60 Hz regions.. ! and I have to shoot 23.98/25/29.97/50/60/100/120/150/180... the whole nine yards !.. shutter is the way to get rid of flicker from most light sources .. what ever is divisible by the mains cycle ..  for 23.98/24 I would use 1/60th in 60Hz regions rather than 1/48th..

 

For slo mo.. eg 100fps for the 50Hz regions.. 120fps for the 60 Hz..  50fps /50Hz.   60 fps /60 Hz..

 

If your looking to have your stuff shown at cinemas and TV.. then shoot everything 23.98p.. 1/60th shutter..


In Topic: Shoulder Rig Sony a...

08 November 2018 - 08:16 PM

Hi,

I'm wondering, what type of shoulder rig do you use with your Sony a7 (or a something)..

I'm always wondering if I would be better just shooting handheld, since it figure out a nice setup with my sony a7, for a shoulder rig.

Thanks ! 

 

 

There are  rigs out there for A series/DSLR .. I would just google it.. pretty sure Zacuto and the usual suspects do them.. Small rig /Wooden Camera do cages and handles too.. also now a lot of people are putting them on small gimbals that have become pretty sophisticated and cheap these days.. Ronin S..Crane etc..


In Topic: Venice + Resolve Debayer Issues?

06 November 2018 - 05:39 PM

If using Resolve please make sure for any quality assessments that you go into the raw settings and use the Sony raw decoder rather than the black magic one. You'll find you get less noise and gain and a better over all image if you use the Sony debyer.

 

 

​Lifted from another forum re Venice debayer...referring to the latest V of Resolve.. 


In Topic: Film in cinemas

Ironically the future of film is probably Netflix.. they are now paying for the good stuff ..eg 22 July for the high end directors .. and the studios are turning out Comic book tat.. and endless pre sequels .. squeaklelles ..
