The Rolling Shutter Effect Explained

Published in Technology & Computing

Rolling Shutter is a type of distortion that affects cameras across the price spectrum. The more you know about it, the better you can deal with it

There has been a lot of excitement about Arri’s new Amira camera, (featuring an Alexa sensor in something closer to a traditional ENG form factor) not least because it would appear that it could be very useful outside of its intended documentary context and it has been expected to have a much lower price tag than the Arri Alexa

Popular though the Arri Alexa is, some people have been deterred from recording the Raw output by the requirement for the camera to be tethered to an outboard recorder which sometimes cost as much to rent as the camera itself! RedShark contributor Freya reports

 Cheaper, cinematic cameras come with a cost - they tend to have Rolling Shutters, which means that rapid movement can be skewed. In the next few months, you'll be able to buy cameras with Global Shutters at all price points. This can't come soon enough, according to Phil Rhodes

Ned Soltz, our East Coast correspondent, has all the details on the new Sony pricing, and how it will stir up the Digital Cinematography marketplace
