Hey guys, recently made big mistake, I am filming for my documentary.

I am filming it on my EX-1, I live in Ireland, the settings were 1080 25p, shutter speed 60 (first mistake, I think), flicker reduction was off but at 60Hz, filmed under a tungsten light, powered by a generator.

There was some issues with the footage after reviewing it.



this link is not exactly representative of the footage but gives some idea.



I have two questions;

1. is it possible to salvage my footage, can I reduce this strobing or flicker, by converting the footage.

2. Should I have used these settings, 1080 25p, shutter speed 50, flicker reduction on 50Hz,



any help would be great as I will be shooting further material next week.

thanks people


Luke

Tungsten lamps generally don't flicker unless you are shooting at very high frame rates

None of that looks like it's due to the lighting, more like little bumps on the camera during the motion. I don't see any noticeable flicker in more stationary framings, though. That being said, I like to set the EX to the area I'm working in. In Ireland it's 50Hx power, so shooting with a 1/50th(172.8 degree for 24p, or 180 for 25p) second shutter would be best. You can still shoot 24P if you want, and I would if you're showing in the US. If this is a project for the European market, then you'd do 25p. I normally use flicker reduction @ the line hz of the mains in the country (50 in your case).
