Best D800 settings for shooting video ?
Feb 24, 2014

As the title says, I'd like to set my D800 for best results for NIGHT video !

I have NEVER done video -not even with dedicated film/video camera-, but I have an opportunity to shot a very colorful -and noisy- brazilian carnaval !

Of course, I will put the D800 on tripod, and -try to- not have to change lense during the filming ! I thought of using a 24-120 VR and/or 70-300 VR, depending on the filming distance and details I will want to get !

Also, I will have to use the in-camera microphone, as I'm in a region where I can't find a better one !

Now..... your advices, tips, etc.....

Thanks in advance !
