Hi , while shooting HD video in canon 5D Mark2 I noticed a "ghosting effect" ( it is like shooting in low frame rates ) this happens mostly in horizontal pans or when a subject moves horizontally .It is very annoying especially if you plan to watch it on CRT TVs , so please any help in post or on site?

thanks ,,

Let me know if you need more info .
your shutter is too slow
No , this happen even in the highest shutter speed.
By the way , I see this on the camera LCD , so this is not had to do with my computer or editing program .

This is why.
Sing it to the tune of "Rawhide!"

Rollin' rollin' rollin' keep that shutter rolling!! Head 'em up, ,move 'em out, Jell-Ohhh! Jell-Ohhhh!

Frames exposin' not at once, subjects moving, shutter's laggin',

keep that camera pannin! Jell-Ohhh! Jell-Ohhh!

Sorry No , this is not what I am talking about .
Well, you haven't exactly posted a video or a detailed description... So we're basically just guessing.

Do you think we should use telepathy on you? We shouldn't have to.

That just looks like ****ty slow-mo rendering.

I suppose if the OP was slowing down all of his footage, that's maybe what's going on.

A sample vedio ( raw vedio not edited )

First couple watches I didn't see anything but now I can slightly see some jerkiness and that ghosting effect you're referring to. Might be your lighting.

Also if you want smooth motion change your shutter speed so you don't get jerky motion.
