Hi From Spain! This is my first topic in this forum. First, thanx to create this forum. I wish in spain someone create a place like this. The Cinematography in my country is poor.

Well. I've got a Sony HDV FX1E camera. Last month I need to try something in camera. I need record a street and take a photography very similar to the phography with long take shot, with the shoot wide open. I mean this photograhies where you see lines of colours make it by the movement of the cars and objects. So I need the same effect in my camara.

I think I can have it by a combination by my camera and my Final Cut.

My question is wich velocity I need to make this effect. I think I need 25 or less in my shooter velocity.

Is it correct? Whay can I do?

Thanx and sorry again. I hope that you understand my topic.

Thanx again!

what you need to do is called "time laps"
there is maybe a time laps setting built in the cam.

the point is to film 1 image every 2 second for exemple for 5 minutes this will gives you :
60s x 5 = 300 seconds of footage and 150 images
screened at 25fps that will be 150/25 = 6 seconds of images like your picture with a long pose

try different settings to get the effect you need. and don't tuch or move the cam it'll affect the footage.


you can pan and tilt wile doing time laps but it's another story.

i hope it helps

To get taillights to streak you need a very slow shutter speed. If your camera has a "slow shutter" feature you can try that, or maybe use the time lapse. But with "time lapse" you still need to make sure that your shutter speed is slow. Taking one frame every 2 seconds will only give you streaks if that "one frame" is exposed slow enough for the taillights to move during that exposure. A normal 1/50 or 1/60 shutter speed won't give you streaks of light.
