NEX 7 Low Light Video Optimization
Mar 15, 2013

Hey I was wondering if anyone has a good set up for indoor/low light video on the NEX 7. I just got a Rokkor 50 1.4 and it's wonderful but I have to restrict myself to a tripod for the most part in order to stabilize the shot while manually focusing.

I want to do some moving shots and I got a stabilizer but then the fast 50 can't focus by itself so I'll have to use the kit 18-55 that I have instead.

So far my settings are 1/50 shutter speed and I try to avoid anything above ISO 800, too much noise. But that's the problem shots are underexposed, so is my only option to invest in a faster AF lens or is there a trick I'm missing?
