I'm looking for any help or tips on shooting video with my D800E. Best set up. etc. I'm having a really difficult time with auto focus. Can auto focus really be used without it seeking when you move the camera? Do you have to use manual focus, which is really a mess. Also the noise from auto focus, ruins any sound bites. I'm also not looking to use one of those shoulder rigs.
I'm leaving on an extended photo trip overseas next week, and was really hoping to not take my small HD video camera. I'm trying to travel as light as possible.
