Shutter speeds.... I suspect there will be differences between "Film" and digital, Shutter-speed is just one....as it isn't quite the same effect. In film-days posters are right, the individual frames were slightly blurred during fast movement - your brain can't keep up anyway and the blur stops it trying, making for a better experience. The sharpness is restored when the movement stops - Older readers will recall that women were often treated to a degree of "softening" of the image, wherreas men would be sharper, with more contrast from the lighting. Camcorder makers are trying to fool us into parting with money, for their "cinema effect" kit, when in reality most of the technique is only present on-set with folk that know their business. We, by and large, have to accept additional noises, unwanted "players" and so on. Even if filmed "sharp" there is always motion-blur - and I expect thre is some software that will do wonders for those panned shots..... Has anyone tried PanOptica? (not sure spelling) - it's software which is supposed to make pans super-smooth . . . . not expensive, but can only be purchased using PayPal - so I don't use it.
