    Hey guys,

    can you talk to me a bit about this? I was shooting last week and the footage coming out of my P4 just is NOT clean. I
    I’m dealing with what looks like blur or a “double image.” My shutter speed was double the frame rate, but somethings not coming out right. Is it just TOO much movements–the car and the drone being in motion– and I need to shoot a faster frame rate?

    Thanks team!

    That looks like totally normal motion blur to me. There’s always going to be a certain amount of it in your footage–if you set your shutter too high, you get that nasty GoPro look, where motion is overly stuttery and jerky. I prefer some motion blur in my video imagery, especially at 24P. Any fast-moving object shot at a normal shutter speed will have some blur–it’s not inherently bad.
