    Avoid Flickering when shooting a Monitor!

    I need some help.

    How can i avoid shooting a video on a monitor without flickering?

    Example, if i point my video camera Panasonic NV-GS200 at the TV or Computer monitor and record, it will show flickering on the monitor within my video.

    How can i avoid this?

    I am running 60Hz frame rate on my computer monitor.

    Any help please?

    Thanks.

    There are two things you can try:

    (1) Change the display rate on your monitor.
    (2) Add some shutter to your camera.

    You will need to experiment to get the best results.

    Add some shutter.. i am not sure whether my camera contains this feature?

    but i know i can set to manual and auto in my panasonic nv-gs200.

    Oh ya, the 60hz is refering to the refresh rate...

    just need confirmation... thanks dave.

    Yep, you've got it. If necessary, have a look in your camera manual to see how to set the shutter speed. You'll need to set the camera to manual then try different shutter speeds to see which one works best.

    a)

    Oh you mean most cases, when people shoot videos on computer monitor, and to avoid flickering.. shutter is the solution for it...

    hmm ok..i will check the manual when i get back from work...

    if higher shutter speed better or slower? or it depends? I plan to shoot indoor, interviewing a guy then later showing his machine (demonstrating some software), then shoot the video back to the person again.

    b)

    just curious, if i have set the shutter speed manual (if my camera supports it, not sure yet) and set back to auto after that (so i will have other features configure automatic)

    will my shutter settings be removed and set back to automatic or not?

    I am just quite mix up! Yes, i will go back and do some testing.

    Cheers.

    Wow.. it works...

    Shutters makes the difference

    1/50 ... coz auto is based on 1/125

    my camera can even manual iris.. it rocks...

    but i not sure what is so difference playing with iris adjustments and with back light feature...



    Cheers.

    Awesome! Glad you got it working. There's a lot to learn about how the manual functions work but the best thing you can do is experiment and practice. The more you do, the better you'll understand it all.
