Hello everyone!

When shooting in VFR, would it be wiser to use synchro scan in order to get closer to the desired speed? For instance, if I'm shooting 120 fps, the closest shutter setting to 1/240 is 1/250. But in synchro scan, I can get my shutter to 1/242.2. Which makes more sense? Will i see a difference in the footage? I also noticed that the auto shutter puts it at 1/120. Would this kill all motion blur and detail?

Use the syncro scan but put it in DEG mode; you can set 180 degrees that way and it will automatically adjust to whatever frame rate you set.
