#6. "RE: Christmas lights w/ D5100 in Movie mode " In response to In response to 5
I did have some time to play with the settings over the weekend. From those efforts, I believe I need to set up the camera with the bulk of the lights on before trying to record video with all the lights changing (so I can determine optimal exposure). The test I ran was with some RGB lights that, while I can set them up so they are fully on, it's not the same as when all the lights on the entire display are cranked up. So, I took some notes and hopefully will be able to record soon after all the lights are setup in November.
