...and I don't mean the screens of a smart phone v.s. that of a tablet computer, but LARGE screens (TV screens or projectors), where the differences are clearly visible, if you use the ORIGINAL video - the one that I have uploaded, but which will be deleted by Vimeo after a week. After that, it can still be downloaded from Google Documents: docs.google.com/file/d/0B8y0ySLHq-PbMExqYnFQMFFlV1E/edit?usp=sharing
l had originally made a longer test/sample video, but I had nowhere to put the original it for download, so I had to eventually trim it down to 300 MB and upload it anew to Vimeo.
My 46 inch 600Hz Panasonic Plasma TV, which displays both the Skärhamn boat harbour panning clip and the paragliding panning clips just fine cost me LESS last year than the 42" LG LCD a couple of years earlier (about EUR 700), but the amazing difference that interpolated frames make in this kind of scenes has to be seen to be believed - even in what today is budget price equipment. I won't go into musings here about different prices and features then and now, but I must stress a crucial information about my clips:
There are "artistic" and "historic" conceptions (misconceptions to me) that see motion blur as a virtue and strobing as a vice, consequently making low shutter speed a virtue. With the interpolated frames of a 600Hz plasma set (or a projector for that matter, but somewhat less so for the Benq 1200 that I have tested) this is completely irrelevant. I originally held the view, that a high frame rate is preferable for my paragliding video shoots, so I used 60fps and 720p, but the clips in this test vid were shot at 30fps and 1080p and they are just fine (IMO close enough to perfect) IF VIEWED WITH "MODERN" EQUIPMENT.
The shutter speed that I used for the paragliding clips was 1/800s (plus a slight overexposure), so there is NO MOTION BLUR in the individual frames, but my old LCD TV cannot handle this well, and even the harbour panning scene does not look good.
So I suggest you DOWNLOAD* and copy the original test vid to a a USB stick and compare the video quality of the pans as played on different devices, both at your home and in a store and perhaps marvel at the difference (if you still use a TV set without frame interpolation at home).
