frame rate for 720/60

Recommended Posts

I have a shoot on Friday that will be using a Panasonic camera (some flavor of eng style rig)  I'm finding that the person I'm able to speak doesn't know much technically.  Info is hard to come by i.e.:  exactly what model the camera is.  As for frame rate they told me 720/60.  This is for US television so I'm thinking the 60 is actually 59.94.  

So if I want to jam the camera is it possible?  Would I use 29.97 on my Nomad?  Drop or non drop?  I'll have more info on the day of, but this is a traveling group and it takes forever for them to get back to me.

Thanks!

Thanks Philip,

That was my plan.  If he's shooting actual 60 which I doubt, I would do 30.  I'm fairly certain its NTSC.  Would his camera still take a jam from me?  I would assume I would want non drop code for this.  Yes?

I work a fair amount of network news and usually if they are shooting 720/60 they are running 29.97 drop, or if they are trying for a “filmic” look they shoot 30 drop. If it’s non broadcast production, try the non drop rates.

Drop or Non-Drop will depend, of course, on which one the camera is set to. 

 

Thats true!!!!

Whether the camera person is right or wrong, follow the camera!!😪
