"D5100 & D5300 Auto ISO for video"


Metro Atlanta, US
          

I've got a D5100. Is there any way to set the ISO to a fixed setting (along with Aperture and Shutter) when shooting video?

If not, does the D5300 offer a completely manual exposure setting when shooting movie mode?

I did a firmware update from that nikon hackers site, and now I can set (and it stays) my ISO, and manually set my shutter from 1/30 up. I don't have my 5100 handy at the moment, but I don;t seem to remember being able to make any aperture adjustments, at least nothing on the LCD that changes the exposure.

I am interested in slapping some prime lenses on my camera for video, but the inability to manually "crank" the iris open and closed is a serious problem. When I try to adjust a manual iris ring on a lens, the 5100 won't record and complains. Is there a way around this, so that i can set my ISO and shutter, then manually focus and adjust iris like a professional video lens?

Paul

The D5300 does have a fixed ISO setting. You can turn Auto ISO off.
You can also (ackwardly) adjust the aperture during a recording,
when pushing the +/- button while spinning the rear dial.
I use Auto ISO 12,800 so that there is some "give" while I adjust Aperture when in M (manual mode).

Twist the knob on the top to "M" - Maunal as well as setting auto ISO to a fixed setting. Video really should be shot in manual if you want good results. It's harder than still shots but with changing scenes an auto setting is going to screw you up.

Are you saying that the 5100 can shoot video in manual mode without auto ISO?

I know that it's a must when shooting video to shoot manually. That's why I asked the question in the first place. I've tried in the past to shoot full manual video on the 5100 but have not been able to do so yet. If it can be done, I'll try it again.

I had a D5100 but needed to upgrade to the D5200 when I started shooting more video, for just the reason you are describing. As far as I could tell, the 5100 will automatically adjust the ISO no matter what settings you are using (although the screen may show the value you set, if you look at your footage, you can tell it is changing).

The D5200 does not have this problem. I would assume the D5300 does not either.

The simple workaround for this is to assign the AE-L/AF-L button to to AE lock (hold) and then use it to lock your exposure before starting the recording. This came from an excellent article: Shooting better quality video on the Nikon D5100. http://digitaladvice.littlehole.net/archives/140

Shooting in Manual Mode is a must because it gives you more control.
You can still use Auto Focus and Auto ISO.
