Hey guys,

To start things of im a real noob to DSLR filmaking and im filming longboarding. Longboarding consists of really fast movement and i cant find the right settings for capturing this action.

The camera i have is a NIKON D5100.

I have it set to manual and i just want to know:

  • The perfect shutter speed if im filming a 1920x1080 24fps and when i put it to 1/50 it tends to blur the movement.
  • The right aperture.
  • the right iso and exposure.

Im mainly filming through cloudy over cast scenes. And as well sunny.

try 1/150 sec and above shutter speed for faster movement - you will get less blur then on your fast moving long boards

out side in cloud - try f3.5 - f5.6

in bright sun shine f16 - f22


iso outside 100 iso in the sun

iso outside in dark cloud - upto iso 400


all these are basic starting points but should get you shooting good footage quickly ! have fun !
