Hi all-

Not sure where to post this...

I have a possible documentary shoot in various european (50Hz) countries coming up. I'm planning on shooting 24pa HD (probabably an HDX-900) for broadcast and DVD.
I'll be mostly outside, but I will have some interiors and inside interviews. Due to the run and gun nature of the schedule, I won't always have a monitor.

Q1. I know at 60i non-24p I would expect some flicker...does shooting 24p make it worse or better? Shutter options?

Q2. I would like to bring a pair of small Joker HMI's along. Will HMI's help minimize problems in the flicker department?

I know the camera can be set to 50HZ, but I would think that would open up a bad can of worms during post back here in the states. Can any of you globetrotting DP's out there help me out?


Thanks a lot-

John Cummings
