I've had a 7D for a little over a month now and I'm wondering, does anyone else notice a kind of odd motion blur that doesn't look like a film or HD camera does? I know it has a rolling shutter and gets jello-y when panned to fast, but I'm wondering why the motion blur at 1/50 seems blurrier than shooting on a normal HD camera at 1/50?

I've seen a lot of things online, and the handheld shots look the most pronounced and particularly when its a closeup of a person. These are all at 1/50th and 24p that I'm referring to. Does anyone have a good idea how to minimize the motion blur? Is there maybe something you could do in After FX to change the motion slightly? Or should I just try to raise the shutter speed more?

i completely agree. i'm thinking of buying a 7D but am not sold yet on it's 24P efforts. i wonder if closing the shutter to 1/60th may help.

Shoot some tests of uniform fairly rapid motion and single frame through the parts that seem strange. Upload the interesting stuff here if you find any.

I've noticed this too. 1/60 does help.
