Re: Critique My Frame!
Oh fair enough. Light flicker usually comes down to the the camera shutter speed being equal to or equivalent to what the lights output, whether it is 50Hz or 60Hz.
Banding in camera if I'm not mistaken is generally caused by high ISO but there are other factors at play as well.
I own the C920 and haven't experienced that issue myself. Again, rolling shutter is more necessary for video. As it has to do with scanning across the scene rapidly, either vertically or horizontally. The only way this could apply for photography is if you were scanning rapidly and trying to take a photo which is redundant in itself because its illogical, as in why would someone do that?
You're right about it having no shutter speed. That would need to be fixed via exposure.
I'm currently using an ND filter and a polarizer to darken the scene enough to allow for the higher eposure
Just a tip, you don't need a polarizing filter for that, as polarizers are used to get rid of reflection, darken skies and supress glare. Not necessarily to darken the image. And the more filters you put infront of the sensor you will begin to lose some quality. I would highly recommend using a ND filter with another stop.
Otherwise good conversation. All very insightful.
I do wonder tho, if dragonframe has a shutter option for C920? As some of the older models of logitech's webcam series had software that was able to adjust shutter speed, which is fascinating.
