    Hi Guys, I just purchased the canon m50 with the 11-22mm lense. When i film it looks very un HD and grainy.

    I have tired shooting in fully auto and manual. Also in 50fps 1080p and 25fps 1080p

    I am new to this, am i doing something wrong? I’m trying to use this as a film camera

    If you are trying to shoot 24fps, make sure the shutter is 1/50. Same for 25fps. This is the equivalent of 180 degree shutter of a film camera for the correct motion blur.

    Why are you shooting 50fps? Slo-mo?

    [Warren Eig] “If you are trying to shoot 24fps, make sure the shutter is 1/50.”

    If you don’t have 1/48 or a 180 degree shutter, you should shoot in 1/60 in North America. You really should shoot 1/60 for 24fps anyway, the difference is negligible and 99% of everyone would fail a blind test between the two.

    Yeah, Gary,

    I meant 1/50. But typed too fast on my iPhone. I’m hiring you to be my proof reader. You start Monday.

    [Warren Eig] “I meant 1/50. “

    I know you did, that’s exactly what I’m responding to. You should not shoot 1/50 in North America as a general rule.

    No actually that’s incorrect. You should shoot at 1/50. Even canon recommends that. 1/60 is if you want to shoot 30p. In the US if you want to shoot 24p on a dslr you Shoot 1/50. Do this here in Hollywood.

    You should really shoot 1/60, not 1/50. Less chance of flicker, especially from uncontrolled sources.

    You would fail a blind test between 1/50 and 1/60.

    I don’t know what you shoot but in Los Angeles when we use Canon Dslr cameras for features adn TV the shutter speed is set to 1/50. If you want a video look and 30p shoot 1/60.

    This is how it’s done to emulate a180 degree shutter. 1/50 is 178 degrees. It’s as close to 180 degrees and 1/48 as you can get.
