I noticed that I can change the shutter speed to 1 second. But the only problem is that what ever shutter speed is under 1/24, it will change to that setting but will still shoot at 1/24 shutter speed.


Is there anyway that I can shoot lower than 1/24?? and how

Thanks,

Chad

Obviously you can't capture a new frame 24 times a second and expose each individual frame for longer than 1/24th of a second -- that would violate the laws of time and space...

But for lower frame rates, there are longer exposure times possible, but you have to go through the menu in the right order. I forget the specifics, it may be under Varispeed and by selecting a certain shutter mode.

Yes. Therein also lies the secret to eternal life, extraterrestrial life, and the existence of God.

True as to exposure, but we can fake it in post ;-)

Shoot with a 360 degree shutter, and composite groups of frames. For instance, combine camera original frames 1,2,3,4 to make the first frame, then combine frames 2,3,4,5 to make the second frame, and so forth. That'll get you a weird ultra-smeary look, equivalent to a 1440 degree shutter.
