"What's the best setting for filming?"


US
          

I tried filming on manual, it came out pretty sharp except it was grainy (f/5.6, ISO 400, Shutter Speed around 100-250, it was at a park in the morning). However, when I filmed on automatic, it came out better for some reason. It was less sharp but the grain was gone. Any tips on how to film on manual mode w/o the grain? Thanks!

It is futile to try setting the shutter speed above 60fps for D-movies.

I use Auto Focus
f2: AE-L/AF-L set to AF-ON
I press this button only to refocus when needed.
You can keep it pressed on a moving subject
Aperture Priority
Auto ISO on: 100, 6400 and 1/60s
Movie: 1080; 30fps; high quality
Video mode: NTSC
