Will do, Guy!
Just bought this one and the pistol grip. Will check back with the results when it's all done. :)
Thank you Filmdudezero!
Think I'll be going with 30 FPS and the eventual 60/96 FPS for slow-mo.
Another thing I'm taking into consideration is the fact the TV channel I plan on selling my film to only displays in 1080p 29.97 FPS, I'm not sure if editing the whole thing in 24 to deliver it in 29.97 would be practical at all!
Just to make some things clear:
- if unavoidable, would you shoot in 24 then edit in 30, or the other way around? Is it better to add or to remove frames in that case?
- how does 60 FPS footage slowed down to a 24 FPS timeline compare to 60 FPS slowed down to a 30 (29.97) FPS timeline? Not much difference, I imagine?
30 it is, I think....... haha
Thanks for the help folks!
This seem to be most practical solution, but by giving up 24fps and shooting the entire thing in 30fps, wouldn't I miss the film look/mood?
I love me the cinema look and think it would match really well with everything other than the action itself in this doc.
To make things even more complex, I just remembered we'll also be shooting a few inserts on DV for texture. But I don't even want to think about it now. lol!
Holy hell, thought many people had jumped over to give me advice. It was all spam. Damn you spammers!
I'm in the same situation as you, looking for a rugged external HD to take with me on a 1 month trip to Mexico. Didn't know they made those with SD card slots.
Do you know how the transfer works without a computer?
I was about to buy this one from BH, but the 2TB at 169$ might be worth a check.
This is a hard one, but I'ma give me best to try and give up 24fps for this one.
