Hello everybody.

I have a Question that I wanted to know it a long time ago.

I watch Hollywood Movies and noticed that the camera is very special to normlay homevideo camera.
I know the price is very different hehe, but I wanted to know why the hollywood or film camera is slow and normal home camera fast motion moving?

I did a research and found that hollywood cameras records with 50 frames/sec. Is that the reason?

I like to buy a similiar hollywood camera...but for cheaper price.. Can someone recommend a product?


thanks

The fast/slow effect you are describing is the difference between interlaced and progressive scan.

If you want to make high quality films I'd suggest renting instead of buying, because unless you are stupidly rich the only equipment you will be able to afford won't get you quality.
