Camera settings help.
Basically, I have a question regarding the settings of my camera - and working with different resolutions.
So, I have started filming my teammates at their Jiu Jitsu competitions; however, I would like to start incorporating more slow motion into my videos. Anyway, to do this I know that its is better to fail at 50fps (I use a Canon 70D, and mostly a Sigma 17-55 lens, and sometimes my Canon 50mm prime lens), but my Canon only films 50fps and 720p.
Anyway, my question. If you were to fit the competition would you film the whole day in the 720/50fps settings? Or would you switch between those setting (for slow motion) and the regular 1080p/24fps settings for everything else - if you only had one camera that is. And if the latter is the case, how would one deal with that in post production (Final Cut Pro)? Would you render the whole video in 720p because the slow motion parts are 720p?
Here is a link to one of my videos so that you can see what type of stuff I am filming - so that you can give me more specific advice. Please remember though that I have only had my Camera for one month and am brand new to all this so the video will not be of the standard you are accustomed too. Also, the whole thing was filmed in 1090p/24fps, however, the slow motion parts look extra crappy. Here you go:
Any advice or tips will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, and best wishes.
