I often used about 30 frames per second for film when shooting helicopter aerials,
so would it be useful and necessary do to the same with the Alexa ??

Thanks for any ideas,

aAssuning you used 30 fps to smooth out the motion, then play back at 24/25 then nothing has changed so yes.

Hello Michael,

when you are recording ProRes to the SxS cards, you can set the sensor speed to e.g. 30 fps and the project speed (MENU>PROJECT>Project Fps) to whatever your deliverable needs to be. If you set project speed to e.g. 24 fps, the clips will then play back at 24 fps and have a 24 fps time code.
The TC is provided internally from the camera in either rec run or free run. If set to rec run, you can directly see how long the shot will be when played back.

Cheers
Oliver
