D800 video tutorial?
Jun 12, 2012

Can anyone point a video novice to a good tutorial on shooting video with the D800?
Preferably D800 specific.

It may not be exactly what you are looking for, but have you seen this?

Thanks but not really what I was looking for. It was rather entertaining in the way they managed to make sound as though he was reading instructions for assembling a flat pack wardrobe accompanied by 1970s shopping mall musak.

I was looking more for hints and tips on how to make movies, best settings, accessory equipment for stability, workflow etc. Something more on a par with a Thom Hogan or Jason O'Dell production.

This site has some very useful information:

http://photo.vanderkolk.info/photo-article-nikon-d800-video-tricks.php

It can be tricky framing a Google search term for this info. Searching for 'video tutorials' naturally produces an irrelevant flood of suggestions.

Preferably D800 specific.

What specifically are you trying to learn about shooting video on the D800 that wouldn't be covered by a general and up-to-date tutorial on shooting HSDLR video?

I suspect that if I knew that I might not be asking

However, I have a couple of Thom's guides and they are very revealing of the ways in which a camera performs it's operations that are not adequately covered in the manual. Not being familiar with video I was interested in any information I could get. Nearly all the books I have seen reviewed are totally Canon oriented and I was hoping there was something around that was more Nikon aware before I go and shell out money. Anything free would be even better of course!
