"how to set for video d5100"
Wed 20-Feb-13 07:41 PM by stefanocps


Hi
i amstefano, from italy
I am a new owner of this machine , bought mostly for video
I am doing practice a lot but still have lot of doubt on how to get the most of the quality, with settings, manual or aperture priority, auto iso ecc...
Often i come out with too much noise even if is not very dark
I use normally manual focus
can anyone give me a good info on the best way to set nikon for video?
thanks a lot

Here's some useful info that I keep bookmarked: http://digitaladvice.littlehole.net/archives/140

One big pain with the 5100 is that you can be in manual, but it will still change the ISO when shooting video. You have to prevent this by using the AE/AL button to lock down the exposure, as detailed at the above website.
