Title: any help would be appreciated
Post by: enigma2013 on December 22, 2012, 10:54:11 AM
Hello folks, Im new to dslr & have purchased a couple of 60D's, Ive been getting some good tutorials on youtube & am now ok with most the camera settings iso / fps shutter etc but have one problem! When I do a pan the footage seems to so stutter slightly on playback, Ive posted this very short clip to you tube. The problem I have is very noticeable when passing the windows as you will see, any help would be appreciated. Im using the latest (magic lantern)  as such it gives a info file details of which ive also posted below. Thank you

Tough to pan smoothly handheld. But for starters, at 25fps you should be shooting at 1/50 shutter speed.

I'd avoid panning, even with a $15,000 tripod, the technique is difficult.  At a slow shutter speed, its even more difficult.  Panning and zooming are the two areas where new shooters get into trouble.

This will not fix the pan issue but for 25 FPS set your shutter speed to 1/50s.

For the pan issue, you probably need to pan slower and a tripod/monopod may help a bit but as Mt. Spokane said it will not go away as the image capture is raster based... Unlike film based movies where the whole frame is exposed at once...

Part of the problem was due to your hands were shaking up and down. You were not using an IS lens. IS lens is a must for hand-held video.
