Default Video Shutter Speed (Slo Mo)

Ok so I know that when shooting video on a DLSR you want to have the shutter speed double the frame rate.

However I am wondering, if you want your end result to be slow motion and shoot at 60p to later convert to 24, do you want to shoot that at a shutter speed of 120 or keep it at double the speed of the end result i.e. 48 (50)

Is there a better equation or does it really matter.......

Guess I will do some experimenting, but curious what others have come across.

At slow mo a 360 degree shutter looks great. That would be 1/60 at 60fps. Also if you are using final
cut turn off frame blending.

Just do experimenting and see what looks good to you at different settings. Sometimes you can get away with "wrong" settings especially when the rest of the shot is spectacular.

You got it. Double the shutter speed to 1/120
