Re: What settings should i use for filming in the snow?

What kind of editing do you do? If you want the most data and best image, and you don't mind color grading in post editing:
Protune On
Shutter Auto
EV -0.5 or -1 (depends on how bright it is outside)
ISO MIN 100
ISO MAX 100 (up to 400 if you don't have bright sun)
WB Set this manually to whatever looks best (you can also try Native, but this takes a lot more work to correct)
Sharpness Medium
Color Flat

For very good quality but with less work in post editing:
Protune On
Shutter Auto
EV 0
ISO MIN 100
ISO MAX 400
WB Manually set
Sharpness Medium
Color GoPro
Press on the Rear LCD before you start and lock the exposure on someone/something. This will help make sure the exposure doesn't get messed up by light refecting off the snow.
