This weekly course covers the most common questions videographers encounter when shooting and editing with DSLR cameras, from choosing a frame size and frame rate to understanding moiré. Authors Rich Harrington and Robbie Carman will also help you understand the impacts of compression and the difference between cropped (or micro 4/3rds) and full-sized sensors in cameras, and much more. This continual FAQ guide is a handy way to find the answers to the questions that plague you the most.
Alright, Rob. So. >> Mm-hm. >> You mentioned 120 frames per second. >> Yup. >> It's the swipe to the left. >> Yup. >> And that's going to put you into slow-mo mode. >> Right. >> Now, there's no choices, it's 120 frames per second. >> And if I move my hand in front of there, you see, you notice it looks kind of really like hyper real, right? >> Yeah. >> Because I'm recording at 120 frames per second, but, the idea with any time that you're going to overcrank the, the camera right? >> Yeah. >> Whether it be a film camera or digital camera or your iPhone. So you're going to take that 120 frames and you're going to interpolate it for the playback speed.
So the end result, is going to be my hand that I was just moving in front of the camera. While it looks really weird and fast now, when we go to play it back, it will be nice, slow, crisp slow motion. You notice here I got a simple bracket. >> Yeah. >> I just ordered this guy off an Amazon type thing. >> Yeah. >> But you know let's just, we'll set that there and let that keep rolling until it stops. >> Yup. >> It, It's still going. It's past a minute. I'm pretty impressed. It's actually surpassing what a lot of the actions cam will do. >> Yup. >> This is a pretty simple bracket here. So I just did a search and what you'll find, is basically something to hold the iPhone.
>> Yeah. It's this nice little slot. It just slots right in there and then on the back, you have an opening for your actual lens and flash controls right back there. So, you're not going to obscure the lens or block it. Simple plastic. It's probably, you know, probably takes two pennies to make. >> And, and, there's >> It works out pretty well. >> Yeah. Well, and if you really want a pro one that goes all the way around the case Really Right Stuff will sell you, like, a steel magnesium one for about 120 bucks with thread mounts. This is the. >> And it has lasers on it, too, right? >> Couple buck options. Yeah, yeah. >> LAUGH >> This is the cheap version. >> Right. >> You will still want to, like, put a piece of tape or something.
>> Of course. >> To hold the camera in. But then we're just using, you know, one of these typical little manfrotto hot shoe type things that makes it really easy to connect. >> Yep. >> Thread that in. It's still going. We're coming up on two minutes. I'm impressed. >> That's great. >> LAUGH So you can, you know, take that, slip it in, and it's just going to slide in. In this case, I'm in the case. I pop that out, but you get the idea. >> Yeah, right. >> And as it's recording 120 frames per second, but when you hit stop. >> Yeah. >> Basically, there's this little iPhone interface. And it's pretty straightforward, right? >> It is.
It took me a little while to get sort of what was going on. But if you've ever used a nonlinear editorial application like Final Cut or Premier or the Avid, you might become used to these little hash marks that you see under a clip when you change the speed. >> Yeah. >> And it's essentially the same idea. >> Yeah, you just pull those in to sort of say, this is real time, that goes to slow motion. >> Right. And so, the further away the hash marks are away from each other, Obviously, the slower you're going in that point in time, the closer this hash marks are together, the closer you are to real time. >> But usually when I'm creating a slow motion shot. I mean, unless I want to like, share it from the phone and like, post it to social media.
I want to do that within an editorial environment. >> Yeah, I've never gotten this whole desire to be like, I want Photoshop on my iPhone. I'm like, yeah, that's kind of cool. But I'd rather Sit in front of a real computer and do some of these tasks and it's no different with video. >> Yeah, and so what we want to do is actually get this off. Now, if you want to send it to people, you know, you could tap this send button here. >> Sure. >> Or you could post it and that's fine. >> Yep. >> But it's incredibly limited. So, when we come back, we are going to show you how to get the original file off here with no compression. And then we'll take it into another tool and show you how to interpret it.
