In this video I’m going to show you how to convert your shutter speed to shutter angles and back again.
Shutter Speed and Shutter Angle
So if you find yourself in the situation where you need to convert from shutter speed to shutter angle, here is the equation that you need to use.
You take your frame rate, multiply it by 360, and then divide by your shutter speed. So lets say you needed to figure out what the shutter angle is for 1/50 of a second at 24 frames per second (fps). Is would be 24 times 360 divided by 50, or 172.8 degrees.
Now lets say you needed to go the other way: you use the same equation, only this time you divide by the angles. So if you wanted to find out what 180 degrees is in shutter speed at 24 fps, it would be 24 times 360 divided by 180, which equals on forty-eighth of a second.
