    Let me know what you think.

    would it make much of a difference to film in 30p?

    also I like the look of an aperture around 2.8 but since its so bright I shot at a shutter speed at 3200 what effect exactly does that have on 24p footage?

    Shoot 60p and crank the shutter speed as much as you can, then slow that down it will be much smoother. The jitter in the video is because your shooting at such a slow frame rate.

    I don't know if you have Final Cut Studio or not, but one of it's components, Cinema Tools, has a function to change a quicktime file's playback FPS.

    But yes, shoot at as high a framerate as you can and then slow that down.

    I don't believe the 5D2 shoots at 60p like recommended above. Also, If you want your aperture wide open in bright light, you may want to consider some ND filters. Even the cheap ones will get you to a workable exposure.

    The 5Dll only shoots 60fps at 720p. At 1080p the best you can get is 30fps to then further slow it down.

    Cheers.

    Did they add 60fps 720p with a firmware update? I know it didn't do it originally.

    If you slow down the footage, you'll get the jittery effects. You can get extremely slow motion effect by going through Apple's "Motion". Here's a link to the website on how to do that. I've successfully done slow motion shots from 24p that looked amazingly smooth and slow. Shooting in 30 or 60 will help improve the overall result, but if you only have 24 frame footage, it'll work as well.

    I wasn't aware of that, but I'm guessing that would have to be it.

    On another camera, Im finding 60@720 isnt so bad.
    Im talking GoPro which is no way near a 5D.
    But if were talking retime such as FCPX and using Optical Flow, 60@720 delivers better than HD format under 30fps.
    Same with AE and Time remap :)

    Yeah honestly 60fps at 720p isn't bad at all. If you need to do slow motion with a 5D Mark II, it's definitely an option to consider. The GoPro is a little less professional. :p

    There is no 720p60 mode on the 5dII.

    Setting the shutter at 1/3200 only adds to the jittery feel and having a slower shutter speed would allow it to feel more natural.

    At the end of the day you aren't going to achieve any great slow motion with this camera without a lot of time and effort in post and the right conditions when shooting.

    No offense but you have pretty pricey DSLR and you even don´t know that you have to shoot atleast 60 frames per second to have "smooth" slow-motion

    Sadly no but there is the MKIII https://vimeo.com/39292404

    Well slo mo is still a fail if your final footage looks like this

    Honestly a Phantom or any heavy iron that shots over 120fps is best for this job.

    OP has a Mkii.

    If the OP had the budget for a phantom I don't think he would be here!

    just come off the olympics with 1000fps and suddenly 60fps seems like real time!

    Have a look at Twixtor... a software plug-in that does fab slow mo.
