A question about slow motion
Posted 23 January 2009 - 08:45 AM
I wanted to make a smooth slow motion. I shot a lizard that could move very fast. I put the shutter speed at 2000 and it began to get a little dark in the viewfinder. I read it has a
Max Shutter Speed: 1/10000 sec
I then tried to slow it down in post but the picture came out normal and nothing was slowed down. Have I done something wrong or missed something?
I am confused because I am still learning about the technical side of Cinematography.

Basically, standard video only records 25 (or 30 in the US; I don't know where you are) frames per second. The only way to achieve true slow motion is to record more pictures per second and replay at the standard rate. Your camera doesn't do that.
