    What do you think about filming skating at 24/25p?

    so, opinions? and if i film in 24p, what shutter speed should i use? i know the 180 degree shutter rule, but if i film at 1/50 it's a little bit blurry.

    25p is nothing special
    I'd like to film an edit in 24p, but I think you'd need a legit tripod for that to work.

      i really like smooth tripod clips, so that won't be a problem. i'm asking about the 24/25p because it's skating, so there are lot of fast movements. i don't want my edit to be a super blurry. with my previous camera i always filmed at 30 or 60p, but with my hacked GH1 i can do that only in HD, not FHD, and i want the best quality.

      so i shouldn't follow my buddy with the camera on skates if i film at 24p?

        Filmed at 60p then converted to 24p for the clips that were not slowed down.

          thanks, that's not bad. finally had my first real session today, winter is almost over. filmed 3-4 clips in 24p, it's sweet, i won't have any problems with it i think.

            24p at 1/48th is going to give you some motion blur- that's the whole point really, to make it look "filmic". Try to not pan/move the camera too fast or it'll get stuttery. Followcam stuff is going to be stuttery with 24p because the scene is changing so fast, there's not really any way around that. You could slow down the shutter with followcam stuff but then it'll just be a smeary mess.

            I say try it out and if you don't like the look, do 720/30p with a bit-higher-than-180-degree shutter (so between like 1/60th to 1/200th or so). The 720 mode on the GH's is still really detailed, and 30p with a faster shutter is going to give more temporal resolution, so the overall impression of detail should be close to 24p with a slower shutter.

              Yeah, tripod is a must.

              The way I always do it is film at 60p, then convert to 24p.

                Skating is pretty fast, so you're going to get a lot more 'jitter' out of 24. As long as you can keep it steady it can look good, but once things start moving all over the place, it'll get messy. If you can keep your shutter at 1/50 or 1/100 it should look okay, and you won't get as much motion blur. And feel free to keep bumping up the shutter for the effect you like, just keep it a variable (or close) of 24.

                  Filmed this all in 24p with a couple of tripod panning shots if you'd like to see a sample.

                    thanks guys!

                    watched that NYC edit yesterday, i didn't think it was filmed in 24p. filming in 24p is no big deal.
