hi my name is ramesh bhatnagar


Then please go to My Controls at the top of the page and edit your Display Name to that.

Basically shutter angle, in a movie camera, when combined with the frame rate, controls shutter speed.

Shorter shutter speeds and you get less motion blur and less exposure, longer shutter speeds gives you more more motion blur and more exposure -- just like in still photography.

We have been accustomed to the amount of blur when shooting at 24 fps with a 180 degree shutter (which being half-open from 360 degrees means 1/48th of a second when shooting at 24 fps).

Since 24 fps is a somewhat low frame rate to successfully create the illusion of continuous motion from a series of still images shot quickly in succession... you have to factor in "strobing", the stuttery feeling that gives you the sense that the motion is made up of too few samples over time. Too little motion blur per frame and the strobing seems more obvious and the motion is very choppy. Too much motion blur per frame and the motion looks too smeary, blurred, and artificial.

Some action films have exploited the choppy, strobey look from using shortened shutter angles.

Most film cameras don't really allow longer shutter speeds than 1/48th at 24 fps because most are limited to 180 degrees, maybe 200 degrees at the most. But many video cameras allow even longer shutter times at 24P, which can get you more exposure in low-light but more motion blur than a film camera would normally create.

thank u divid mullen sir, i write my real name. ramesh bhatnagar " ramy". sir what i learn here that is we used shutter as door . which allowed light to fell on film. after we set our aperture. and used aperture no. for dept of field. but my sir said that shutter is only for used as door this has no relation about blur. as i say when we catch fast moving object we keep fast shutter speed for still camera. but my sir said we capture moving object with controlling fps for ig. for fighter plane we keep more then 200 fps. rather then 24fps. he said we are playing with fps in moving object. not with shutter angle . but my another friend said we keep shtter speed for moving object to get sharpe and clean and no blur. that why im confused. so sir can you explain me that please. thanks sir :unsure:
