5 SHUTTER SPEED TIPS for VIDEO

5 SHUTTER SPEED TIPS for VIDEO


What’s up you guys! It’s Jordy
here for cinecom.net and let’s first get this
out of the way here, I actually cut myself
this weekend, I even have a stitch in there, so now we
just have to wait until that is healed up. But that is not important, what is important though is that
we’re going to look at five tricks on how to use your
shutter speed. -Yannick, catch! -Oh! Nice one! [Cinecom’s Intro music] First up a big shoutout to Videoblocks
who are sponsoring us today. It’s a huge video stock library where you
can download unlimited templates, video effects, clips and so much
more for a single price per year. To find out more, you can click the
first link in the description below! The shutter speed is the refresh
rate of your digital camera. The slower the refresh rate is,
the more motion blur we see, as the sensor is exposed
longer to the light. On the opposite, when the shutter
speed is faster than normal, everything is super sharp as the
sensor gets exposed super quickly. A normal shutter speed gives us a natural
motion blur, just like the eyes would see. A simply rule is to take the
double of your frame rate. So, if your frame rate is 25 fps, your shutter speed should
be 1/50 of a second. Now, there’re many occasions where you
don’t want a normal shutter speed and here are five
reasons why. The first one is to bring a more
dramatic look to your action films. We’re going to increase the shutter
speed to around 1/200 of a second. Having this on a 25 fps recording, we actually have a 4 times
faster shutter speed than normal. This trick is actually used
in many action or war films. And one of the most iconic
ones is Saving Private Ryan, to make the explosions and blood splatters
more crunchy and sharper. And this even added a more
realistic tone to the film. Here you can see Yannick
and Lorenzo boxing. The first example is with a normal
shutter speed of 1/50, and now I’m switching
to 1/200 of a second, which makes the entire boxing
scene more dramatic. The next shutter speed
trick is the opposite. I’m going to shoot at 25 fps
with a shutter speed of 8. And this gives us a lot
of motion blur, which could reflect on the dizziness of your
actor, who might have just taken some drugs. Here’s that same shot with
a normal shutter speed. As you can see here, the whole
feeling of it is just gone. Shutter speed tip number 3! If your camera can shoot slo-mo,
for example at 180 fps, you wanna set your shutter
speed at 1/360 of a second. However, if you’re shooting a fast
action, which is very often the case, I would actually suggest
setting it a bit faster. Here I’m filming at a normal
shutter speed. We’re seeing a normal motion blur, but
the audience can’t focus on the blurry details, which become more prominent
in slow motion. So, what I usually tend to do is set my
shutter speed to 1/500 on a second, which slightly makes the moving
parts crispier and sharper. And this is more pleasant for the audience
as they can see the details now a lot better. The next one is about
time-lapses. A beginner mistake I’ve seen a lot is where
someone would let their camera roll and just speed up their
clip in post-production. But what you’re actually doing when speeding
up a clip, is changing its frames per second. So, your shutter speed
should also change but that’s something you can’t
do in post-production. Some cameras like the GH5 allows
you to change the fps in-camera. And that tells me that I need to change
my shutter speed to 1/4 when my fps is 2. This gives me a natural motion blur when
the clip is played back at a higher speed. If you can’t film at a low fps, then do
try to set your shutter speed slower, so that your motion blur is natural
when you’re speeding it up in post. And then the final tip for this video is when
you’re shooting in a dark environment. You can’t increase your ISO endlessly
or you will see too much noise. And that’s why you don’t have to be afraid
to lower your shutter speed a tiny bit, exposing your sensor more. Definitely when there’s not
much movement in your shot, the extra motion blur
is not big of a problem. Here I’m shooting at
1/30 of a second. And the same goes when you’re filming
outside and you forgot your ND filter. Instead of closing your aperture all the
way and having everything in focus, you could increase your shutter
speed to around something of 125 and thus you can open your
aperture a tiny bit more, having the background
more out of focus. If you enjoyed these tips, then
I’d love to invite you all to our complete DSLR
filmmaking class. You’ll learn every aspect of professional
compositing, camera movement, the visual language, lighting
and so much more. You can find a link somewhere in the
description below to learn more. Thank you all so much
for watching and like always, stay creative! We currently have a visitor here
at the Cinecom studio, guys, this right here is the guy that
doesn’t wanna get recognized. -And it is Orange 83 and I’m
shooting a video with Jordy. I will be uploading this to
my channel next month. -So, make sure to check out

    Jordy, I love your stuff and I am interested in your DSLR filmmaking course to help me step things up a bit. However, I'm not into paying a monthly membership fee right now. Is there any other way to purchase that course? Thanks in advance for your reply and keep up the awesome YouTube posts. I also look forward to them.

    What I'm about to say is not a trick, but an important tip: if you're recording in an environment with fluorescent lights, you need to synchronize your shutter speed with the frequency of this kind of lights to avoid flickering, which is really annoying. In the USA the frequency of these lights is 60Hz, and here in Europe is 50Hz, so the shutter speed (in Europe for instance) must be 50 or multiples (50, 100, 150…), and 60, 120, 180 and so on in the case of the USA. You don't encounter this issue with LEDs lights, but with fluorescent lights we must be really aware of this. I hope you find this useful 😉

    If you are speeding up clip in post you can switch Time Interpolation from Frame Sampling to Frame Blending. This makes time-lapses look much better and it simulates low shutterspeed.

    Love your guy’s content! I unfortunately only have my iPhone to shoot video and the app I use (ProMovie) doesn’t allow me to drop below a shutter speed that match 24fps, but I really want to get a motion blur for a step-printing effect. I’ve played around with layering the same shot, each displaced by a frame and the opacity dropped. It works ok but I was wondering if you guys had any tips?

    Jordy, Yannick, I have one question: Shooting at 180fps and increase the shutter speed to 1/500 (slow motion with Lorenzo), how do you do to keep the video without noise on frames as we can see the aperture seems to remain pretty low (like more than 2.4/3 for me if I’m not wrong) however foreground and background are still in focus? Is it a question of sensor? If I’m not clear, please tell me, I will explain further. Have a great day :))))

    Correct me if I'm wrong:
    If I let the camera roll for 4 seconds at 24 fps, and I wanna make it fast so it lasts just 1 second (making it 96 fps), then I should do so while keeping my shutter speed at 1/192 (or 1/200), right? It should give me the motion blur I need right? Or am I missing something

    Great tips. It's hard for me to tell the difference on any video with SS, = or > 1/(2*fps=X) on YouTube, certainly anything with less SS is apparent with the added motion blur. Do you think it's harder to tell on YouTube for shutter speeds at or greater than the 180 rule because of the compression?

    Isn't it easier to fake a slow shutter speed and keep shooting in higher SS? Like in photography where you can stack photos to simulate a long exposure.
    Do people do that? There are plugins that create descend motion blur but they mostly use them for CGI.

    This summer I'll be shooting waterskiing videos. I plan on using a high frame rate like 120 fps so that when I capture the ultimate whipout, I can use the footage to create great slo-motion replay. For the most part though, the majority of footage will be played at regular speed, and I'm assuming my rendering software will discard 3 of every 4 frames when it renders it at 30 fps. To get the best motion blur, for my purpose, should I set my shutter speed accordingly for the shooting frame rate of 120 fps, or the rendered rate of 30fps, or somewhere in between to try and accommodate for both frame rates?
