Canon 5D MkIII Shoot in lower than 24FPS?

Hi All.

 

I'm looking for a way to shoot in a lower (faster) frame rate than 24fps on my MkIII, is this at all possible? I'm going to be shooting an action sequence for a short film in a few weeks, and from what I read online it seems like shooting slightly faster than 24fps and playing it back makes it look more "acton-y" (for lack of a better term).

 

Any thoughts? 

 

Thanks for any and all help!

There is an amazing thing called a manual. It looks like 60fps is as fast as you can go:

I want to go lower, or faster than 24fps - like 20fps for example, not higher/slower.

 

Go ahead and check your manual. It isn't in there.

If it is not too long, you can just shoot a bunch of individual frames and combine them into a movie. That might be too slow, though.

CAN SOMEONE TELL ME HOW TO MAKE A POST IN THIS FORUM. PLEASE.

I have spent about 30 minutes looking but do not see how.

Frustrated senior.

It is possible with ML. Don't blame anyone later for what you decide to do to your own cam.

You can't lower the frame rate in post processing, by dropping frames?
