NEX-5 Video - crazy shutter speeds.

Re: NEX-5 Video - crazy shutter speeds.

In the past few days I've been experimenting with Fader ND to control shutter speeds with decent results.

I set ISO at 200 as NEX records video at a constant ISO of 200. I choose A mode, chose my desired aperture and dial the Fader ND until shutter speed reaches 1/50.

When I checked the resulting AVCHD files, I noticed that shutter speeds moved between 1/50-1/60.

This is not ideal, but Fader ND is a savior and the resulting video looks much better when the shutter speeds are controlled.

Prior to shooting video, put your camera into Shutter priority mode. Set the shutter speed to 1/60 second and shoot. The shutter speed should stay locked.

Aperture, on the other hand... and you may need an ND filter for very bright days.

Yes 2x fps is the way to go...

  • 25p--> 1/50

  • 30p--> 1/60

But that's not possible to choose by yourself

NEX crippled videomode gives you:

Aperturemode to play with

you can always use F16-32 to get slower shutterspeed (and record all the dust on sensor too )

  • All the other modes doesn't affect the video at all

Too bad is:

You never get Sony do do manual video for the NEX3/5 because they aimed these models toward up-graders from P&S
