    Advice please.

    I recent took a 17 second shot of a steam locomotive at 1080 and on playback the whole train looked as though it would travel ten feet - stop for a hardly perceptible time and then travel another x feet etc.

    I was shooting at 1080 at 30 frames a second. Presumably this is because of the 30 frames per second.

    Would it smooth the video if I used WVGA-50?

    Since steam locos are as scarce as dragons teeth around here I cant really experiment and I do not want to fopar the next one that comes past.

    Thanks for any replies

    Pete

    The jerky playback you describe is normally caused by your computer not being powerful enough.

    That would explain it. Thanks Rocky.
