I do playback for my music videos by playing a song on my iphone, which is connected to a small speaker. The actor sings along to playback while I videotape on my Canon T3i(at 48k). In post, I make sure the song is also at 48K, and then sync everything up.
My question is: Should the song I use for playback while I’m shooting be 44.1 K or 48k? Or does it matter?
For playback it doesn’t matter.
Does not really matter, could be even lower quality if that’s all you have since it’s only for reference at that point.
