*NEED HELP ON SETTINGS* (nOOb)

Recommended Posts

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 !

      Clearing out some stuff I don't use, this is a mint condition Metabones Nikon N/F to Sony E mount Ultra Speedbooster with 1 stop and .71X fov

      I don't have the container or box, will just be the speedbooster and both end caps with the support piece as shown

      Prefer local Los Angeles area pick up for $390 so you can see the adapter in person - can ship to US via PP with additional shipping and G&S fee

      Hi,
      I hail from Singapore and am looking to sell a minty Nikon 28-70mm F2.8. Yes, the "Bourne" lens. I fitted custom-made gears rings bought from Sean of Followfocus gears and they feel like a natural extension. Since I bought this lens a few years back mainly for video work, I didn't mind the autofocus motor not working (common 1st gen AFS issue) and got a pretty good discount. Now, this lens doesn't complement with my other lenses in terms of look and rotation - a nightmare to use 2 types as I will always get the direction wrong. I love the lens for what it does and the image it makes. For some reason, I can't seem to get anyone in my country interested in it (probably due to the autofocus) so I thought it might be ideal for someone willing to accept for what it is or is looking to get it rehoused.
      Take a look at the pictures and send me your offers (USD figures work too). If the number can also cover shipping overseas, I wouldn't mind going the extra mile to mail it. Thanks.
       
      Oh yes, it comes with both original front and back caps and the original hood.

      NEW! - Never used. 510€

      Truly a revolutionary product, the Sigma 18-35mm 1.8 DC HSM is the first wide-angle to standard zoom lens to achieve a large aperture of 1.8. Designed specifically for APS-C sized sensors, the Sigma 18-35mm 1.8 translates to 27mm-52.5mm on 35mm camera.

      Selling my Cinemodded 58mm. Never use the focal length when shooting, always go shorter or longer. Cinemodded by Duclous lenses.
      Lens is in perfect condition, no marks, dust, haze or fungus. Also including a B&W filter to go with it.
