DVX-100 shooting a Computer Monitor Question
Posted 19 June 2005 - 12:37 AM
We have a Panasonic 24 dvx100 (not 100A) and need to shoot a scene where we see text on a computer monitor. Someone told us that it's "impossible" to do, but I'm hoping it's not. Isn't there a way of altering shutter speed on the 24p camera or something to shoot a computer monitor without that streaking refresh thing going on on it?
Or maybe there's a setting on the monitor we can change in terms of refresh rate or something?
If you have any ideas please email me at: Bobby@riggedproductions.com

For U.S. television screens you'll usually use 1/60, for computer monitors you'll need to do the shutter scroll until you get the match you need.
hope that helps.

Under the display settings. Refresh rate cannot be changed directly on monitors, AFAIK. You have to go through the Control Panel (Windows), or right-click desktop, etc, etc... For simplicity's sake, choose 60Hz. Every monitor, old and new, can handle that - and it syncs perfectly with the 1/60th "open" shutter.
