Using D800 for Video
Feb 28, 2013

I'm new to video. Can anyone point me to good references for getting started?

I can read the manual, which tells me what the buttons and dials do. What it lacks is what settings should I use. For instance, it tells me if I'm in A mode, the camera will adjust ISO and shutter speed and if I want to control the shutter speed I should use manual. Okay, but what's the "proper" shutter speed for video?

Can I switch between stills and video easily? I'm getting the impression that there are different menu settings on different screens that have to be changed, which implies I can't quickly change between stills and video while shooting an event.

Any advice apprecitated.
