Canon Talks Shutter Speeds and Frames Rates

On this Canon video, part of the “Canon EOS HD Video Tutorials”, Jem Schofield talks to cinematographer Angus Oborn about frame rates, shutter speeds and how they effect your video.

When working on a video one of the first things we need to know is at what frame rate we would like to record (24, 30, 60 or even 120 frames per second) and at what shutter speed. Those two are interconnected and they can dramatically affect the look of our video – making it look more cinematic or help us create a slow motion feeling when needed.

Only recently we have published another great video on this exact subject by videographer Greg Olson entitled Understanding Shutter Speed and Frame Rate in Video which is highly recommended if you are interested in this subject.
