I will be shooting an HD production in London using an F900 (or perhaps Varricam). In the past I have often filmed SD using 1/100 shutter to avoid flicker. I'm not sure how this will translate to Prog. scan and HD format. Not sure if I should shoot 25p (even though final product will be aired in North American NTSC), or 24p (which may give me grief re. 50hz lighting sources). Or 30p for that matter (which I have no experience with). Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance, John Badcock.

Clear scan shutter function will also solve synch issues, I am assuming by flicker you mean shooting monitors or filming under artifical light?


Choose the native frame rate of the country where the project will be aired but beware of frame rates that are not common in the country where the editing is taking place.
ie Shooting 30p if it is being edited in Europe, necessitates finding a NTSC off line.
