Today we talk about 3 critical video settings that you will find on almost every camera.
This video is an excerpt from my new G85 Video Guide.
Overview of the Settings
Here is a quick synopsis of the video above.
Controls how LONG light hits the sensor each second. Also controls motion blur effects.
Saving Private Ryan is a great example of how a fast shutter speed can be used for tension.
The Bourne movies are a great example of slow shutter speeds (when Jason is dreaming/remembering his past).
180 Degree rule explanation.
Controls how MUCH light hits the sensor. Also controls depth of field or how much of the shot is in focus.
Controls the sensitivity (brightness) of sensor. Noise can be introduced at high ISO levels so try to avoid those.
How I Use These Settings
Here is how I use these settings every time I setup my camera for a shot.
Step 1: Set shutter speed for desired look (180 rule is applied when I shoot most of the time)
Step 2: Set aperture for desired depth of field.
Step 3: Use ISO to make final exposure changes.
