AutoISO on GH3 in manual movie mode

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I just got my first Panasonic camera after reading many reviews on it - the GH3. I've been trying to figure this out and found a few dpreview posts in which most say it can't be done, but some say it can, without providing an explanation. Frankly I seriously can't believe this limitation exists. Someone please tell me I missed something..

I wanna film in 24p, set aperture to 2.8, exposure to 1/50th (since 1/48 isn't available) and use AutoISO. Like I have for many years, on other cameras. Except of course there is only ISO 200 to 6400 available.

I have a variable ND filter but that doesn't replace AutoISO. This is a vacion movie so I want a good balance between good quality and ease of use...

Any ideas?

mpgxsvcd over at personal-view site (and youtube) is really knowledgeable. He mentions the following:


"Just set the flicker Decrease to (1/50, 1/60, 1/100, or 1/120) to control shutter speed with Program Priority and Auto ISO. You cannot control aperture and shutter speed independently and still use Auto ISO with Panasonic cameras and video."


"Flicker Decrease is not available in Aperture Priority video mode(It is greyed out). In all stills mode including aperture priority it will switch to Program Priority for video and allow aperture to float with Auto ISO."


Honestly not sure if that is a max or min setting, or if it actaully limits it to that exact shutter speed..

      The camera is in excellent condition without any marks. It comes in its original box with all original accessories including battery, charger, sync cable, strap, manual, etc. The 8Sinn cage is wonderful- it fits the camera like a glove and gives it plenty of mounting points for accessories. Price includes insured shipping to anywhere in continental U.S. via USPS Priority Mail.
