Blurry Videos

Dear friends,
I can this blurry effect. The effect can be incorporated altering the Tv. But how can the same (blurry effect) be achieved in he video mode?
Kindly refer the link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ejytz4n6amjzv0a/Blur.JPG?dl=0

Cheers.

This can be achieved by slowing down your shutter speed in video mode. A good rule of thumb is to set your shutter speed as double your frame rate. So if your shooting at 25p (PAL) then set the shutter to 1/50. However if you are outside in bright daylight more than likely need an ND Filter to block out some light. Otherwise you'll ending up having to set your aperture to f22. Because if you slow your shutter speed this will allow more light to enter the camera.

But if your shooting at night or inside you should have no issue creating a motion blur.

Dear Alex, thanks for your kind reply. Can you please guide me do I also need to play in the editing table or just shooting in a less Tv is enough?

This is simply slow shutter speed. You will need a few good ND filters of different strengths depending on the time of day you want to shoot.

The new Hoya PRO ND filters are the ones I would recommend, as they use a new and better metalic coating process that blocks some of the IR spectrum so your blacks will record as black and not rusty-black. ( cheap NDs are famous for NOT blocking IR and producing sh*tty looking blacks )

Here's a good example of what cheap ND filter IR contamination looks like. See how the black clothes hanging on the line turn rusty-brown when using cheap ND filters that don't stop IR light.
