The video (and audio) components of hybrid photography are way new to me, coming from a background in still photography. Having a few “recipes” for how to set up for video capture, and little knowledge to back them, I don’t feel confident in my ability to get great video in any circumstances.
In my quest to learn the ins and outs of setting my camera for the best video capture, my colleague and Lumix expert, Mark Toal, joins me for a discussion of the video recording modes.
This is the second post in a series of 4. Each is complete on its own, and together they tell a pretty complete story of video settings, While based on the Lumix GH3, many of the concepts apply regardless of the camera. The first was about the concepts involved in video using the GH3 Motion Picture menu. After this discussion on the recording modes and which to use when, there will be a discussion on the differences between the exposure modes (automated like P,S or A – completely automated like iA, or Manual) when shooting video. And finally we will get into the options that each of the recording modes offers and what they mean to the final output.
Enjoy this bit of information and stay tuned for the next 2 segments!
