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.

The greatest of mankind's criminals are those who delude themselves into thinking they have done 'the right thing.'

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
