View Full Version : GH2 Shutter speed question

11-19-2011, 11:02 PM
I'm shooting with a hacked GH2 (1080p24) and experiencing some horizontal banding when the ISO above 3200. I noticed that if I drop the shutter speed down to 1/25 the banding pretty much disappears.

I've alway set the shutter speed to 1/50 when I shoot at 24p. That's the advice given everywhere. Why not shoot at 1/25 instead? Is there any downside to doing this? I haven't been able to closely examine the footage shot at 1/25 but it looks pretty good when I play it back in my camera.
