hello,
does anyone know if it is possible to change the recording settings on Fostex fr-2 in order to record at different speeds? I need to record at 30fps and can not seem to find this option in the menu.
any info on this would be great.
cheers

For starters, you need to have installed the (optional) time code card that comes with the FR-2. You are referring to a SMPTE Time code reference of 30 frames per second. There are also options of 30 DF (drop frame) or 30NDF (non-drop frame). Your post house or editor should be able to advise you on the correct setting, which will vary depending if you are doing sound for telecined film or straight video. You may also be advised to record with "pull-up" in order to adjust for a 48Khz timeline.

As you can see, there are many variables which are all determined by a combination of the shooting format, the editing format, and the delivery format.
