Help: Difference between D7000 manual settings in Liveview Video and Stills
For the first time this past week, I shot some videos with manual Nikon lenses, mostly an 85mm f2.0 Nikon AiS. I shoot in tight rehab clinics, mostly with an 11-16 Tokina, and talking heads with a Tamron 28075mm f2.8 XR Di.
I tried to test video aperture settings with stills before shooting video with Liveview. But I could not do that. The stills were always underexposed if shot through the pentaprism/mirror, but not when framed and shot through Liveview.
I had the program knob set to M (manual) and the AF-M switch on the lens mount to M. And yet, it seemed that no matter how I dialed the aperture settings in Liveview, Liveview seemed to be on automatic.
The videos came out wonderful. But I cannot explain why I could not get the aperture and speed settings to function the same in both stills and video/
I am embarrassed to admit that I have been shooting videos with 2 D7000s for 2+ years and never noticed this because I never tried to test settings through the OVF for the LCD.
Cam you explain what I'm missing? Thanks in advance!
Hi, I believe that only the pro-level Nikon bodies allow you to change aperture while in Live View
