Re: Best settings for Norway? fjords and landscape. thanks.

Depends on whether you want to grade later or get nice footage straight from cam?

 

For straight out the cam stuff I use,

 

2k 50fps

protune on

ev -0.5

linear fov

auto white balance

stabilised on

sharpness medium

 

for grading I only change,

white balance to either manual or native

sharpness low

2.7K is a great start. Unless you are recording motion, 30/25 fps looks best. Utilizing the spot meter on the back LCD will help you to capture the scenes with the best possible light composition, so be sure to check it. To access the spot meter, press the back of the LCD until a large box shrinks into a smaller box. You can then move the box around the display to get the best lighting.
