Varicam Shutter Speed / overcranking
Posted 09 November 2007 - 02:42 PM
with standard fujinon HD wide angle lens.
Just wondering what your favorite settings are to get the
cleanest effect in 60/48fps. I didn't understand the
shutterspeed table very well, just looking for a solid
garden variety setup if one exists.
I will be editing in FCP importing via FW using FRC.
Thanks for your time,

"Normal" looking results are produced from using a 180 degree shutter. Personally I find a 180 shutter to look a little "blurry" and video-ish at higher frame rates, and prefer a 144 degree shutter at 48 & 60 fps. Others may feel differently. Anything larger than 180 starts to blur in a video-like way at any frame rate.
Keep in mind that 48fps is not an "HMI safe" frame rate, and you'll have to use the synchro-scan to dial in a shutterspeed of 1/120 sec. when shooting 60Hz. sources at that frame rate.
