Re: New York Sight Seeing Best Settings

@bardwell03 - For normal video, I like to shoot at 1080 and 30 fps in the Linear mode. If I'm going to be shooting some action that I might want to slow down later on when I edit the video, I bump up the fps to 60 or higher.

 

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: New York Sight Seeing Best Settings

Hi @bardwell03

 

What kind of filming or photography are you going to be doing? And what sorts of sights are you seeing? Buildings, landscapes, etc. 

 

Will it be fairly sunny in NYC or more overcast?

Hi. Will be general walking around looking at the tall surroundings. A lot of selfie videos as well. Quite a bit of everything I guess.
