I wrote a blog about the D5200, including studio and documentary footage:

Hi  Brandon,

 

I really liked it.

 

If not mistaken, you shoot with standard picture profile with all settings dial downed. I was wondering how much sharpening do you apply to the footage. I have a D7100 and I've been trying to learn and create a workflow for myself. Any tips and workflow advice would be appreciated.

Banding noise and shooting modes.

 

 

Never thought it's so bad!

 

----Modified -----Apology to whomever I misled, I made a mistake, when I used the A mode, the ISO was pumped up automatically so the banding was much worse.

 

Tried at ISO 100, still  bad in dark areas. 

 

1st Image, A mode.

2nd image, Manual mode, a lot better.

Hey JBraddock,

 

I didn't do anything to the footage in post.  What you're seeing in the video is the standard profile with nothing altered.  It's just a great image right out of the box.

Can anyone tell me about using AIS glass with the D5200? As I understand there isn't any way to monitor exposure in video mode (e.g. no histogram). I don't like the sound of this and I'm surprised Andrew didn't mention it in his review (he was using an old, manual e-series lens). How do you expose accurately in live view using manual glass with the D5200?

AIS glass works fine but only in manual mode.  You cannot use shutter or aperture priority modes with any non-electronically connected lenses.  

 

There is no histogram or zerbas.  I've always just monitored by eye and learned how to visually tell if the image is correctly exposed.  It sounds dicey, but you can get consistent results just by practicing shooting in different conditions and then reviewing your work.

If you connect an external monitor (to the HDMI port) with focus peaking it can help a lot.

You can also use a Ninja II to record Higher quality Video and do the same thing with it's monitor.

Has anyone decided if the 7100 is inferior to the 5200 for video due to its lack of OLPF? Is there any moire/aliasing in video mode on the 7100? I'm holding off on buying a D5200 because of the immanent 5300, which has no OLPF (+ prob same sensor as 52/7100) but has 60p, better low light and better battery than 5200. I assume fixed pattern noise will still be a problem with the 5300 ...

I think we are all hoping that Nikon does not cripple the Video in the D5300.

I will probably get one myself for the 1080P at 60 fps.

I thought that I read that the sensor changed...?
