My eyes see motion blur if I wave my hand quickly. 30p does make panning smoother unless you pan really slow then 24p is fine. I'd be hard pressed to see a difference between 30p and 24p outside of panning. Yes, the waving the hand before your face test! I’ve done that with the X-T3 at 60p to see what shutter speed mimics reality the best. And the 180 degree “rule” fails completely here, the motion is too stroboscopic at 1/120th. 60p at 1/60th shutter works for me. It looks most like my real hand waving before my eyes as far as motion blur is concerned. There are no small increments of time left out at that setting. Just like seeing with the naked eye. Thats how I shoot at home. But that’s not what we want for narrative story telling. We want to be immersed in an alternate reality, and for us right now 24p works best for that. And 16fps still works fine for Buster Keaton. I find these frame speed opinions fascinating, its all about how the mind/brain works, and our cultural training & history. If Hollywood had developed a 48fps standard, who would want to shoot 24p? It wouldn’t look like Cinema! Maybe we are all brainwashed by the mechanical & financial limitations of a small group Of engineers over a hundred years ago. fuzzynormal 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
