Tips To Improve Your DSLR Video Recordings

With most if not all of new generation DSLR cameras now come with high definition video recording capability. We are going to cover a few tip and tricks to help you whether you are experienced or new to shooting movies and video in HD.

Manual Focus – Learning to manual focus is really important, even though all cameras have autofocus it’s really unreliable during video shooting. Be sure you also understand which way your focus rings turn, this help you cut down on time adjusting.

Tripod – A tripod is a good idea to keep your camera steady and make every movement as smooth as possible.

Settings – If you can use manual exposure settings because exposures will change as you pan when shooting video. Use 1/50th shutter speed when shooting video. Set your ISO to 200 and try setting your aperture to F/5.6 as this is used by many cinematographers. Also if you have 24fps video capture then you will want to use it. Try to avoid auto white balance if you can, choose one white balance mode and stick with it.

Video – Focus where your subject will be and never shoot vertical. Be sure and invest in a very good memory card, slower cards are no good when shooting video.

These are just a few tips when you are shooting video, we hope these help out and be sure and stop by http://www.42photo.com for all your camera needs.
