In order to get a good film out it is suggested to shoot in 50i (with my HDV Z1) ? but we realize that when using artificial light (tungsten/fluorescent) we got a kind of flickering problem ? considering that in Brazil as USA our power source is 60Hz.

Do you guys have any advice to avoid such 50i ?flick? ? otherwise, considering that I have too many interiors scenes I?ll have to shoot it in 60i.

I appreciate your considerations,

Kind Regards,

Werner Schumann

Hi,

If there is a shutter speed of 60 or 120 that should work. I was able to use get rid of flicker shooting NTSC with 50 Hz using the shutter speed.

Hi,

Alternatively, simply use, or find locations which use, flicker-free or high frequency lighting. A surprising amount of office lighting is now high frequency.
