How to use 60D for Slow Motion video
I am new to shooting video with a decent, DSLR camera, especially one that has manual settings. I want to make a video that has a lot of fast paced to slow motion transitions that appear buttery smooth. What settings do I need to change on the 60D that will set me up for taking footage?
Also, I will be using Premiere Elements if you know any additional tips for that.
Thank you in advance for any assistance!
Note that even shooting at 60fps, you won't get the "buttery smooth" slo-mo action you see in the movies. For example, for 10x slow motion from 60fps video, you'll be showing just 6 fps from the original video. That's going to look jerky unless you interpolate frames between frames with your video software. The really high speed stuff from the pros is shot at hundreds or thousands of frames/sec and then shown at a much slower frame rate.
