Stable footage is a challenge if you are not using a professional gear. Even when not moving, the footage might not be perfectly stabilized, because of hands shaking. Make sure you avoid moving while recording and when you need to walk, walk slowly and take big steps. Do not hurry. When shooting a landscape panorama, turn around slowly and make sure your hands move steady. While recording a dynamic take keep cold blood. Stay focused on your subject and remember to move your camera slowly. When using GoPro 7 or DJI Osmo Action cameras the build-in image stabilization improves the video. Technology at service of people 😉
Long movies take lot of memory on your card and 75% of it will never be used. Try to take shoots with up to 20 sec length tops. It’s better to shoot many shorter takes than just few long ones.
PAL and NTSC are video standards – PAL is European and NTSC is US standard. However nowadays it does not matter anymore. Movieyourself advices to use NTSC mode, which allows to shoot 30 fps or its multiple – 60 fps e.x. It allows us to focus on some shoots during the edit, using Slow Motion effect.
Most popular modes are currently 720p (HD) and 1080p (Full HD). New cameras allow to shoot 4K (UHD) quality. We recommend to shoot in 1080p, which provides perfect picture, so your movie will have the top quality.
If your camera allows to record 60, 120, 240 or more frames per second, it gives us a possibility in editing to show as time in certain scenes appears to be moving more slowly than in reality. Since our eyes see 25 fps, footage shot in 60 fps can be played 2 times slower. With 120 fps is can be played 4 times slower. The more frames per second, the greater slow motion effect can be achieved.
