need a function limitation list

I need to know in which condition, which function can be used or not.

 

Sometimes the limitation is weird.

For example:

1: the Low Light mode, can be used in 2.7k60p but cannot in 4k30p or 2k30p.

2: When 4k60p is selected, the Slo-Mo will be forced enabled. By disabling the Slo-Mo, 4k60p will be set to 4k30p.

3: In 4k60p Slo-Mo, Low Light can be enabled, but in 4k30p (without Slo-Mo) it cannot.

Re: need a function limitation list

1: the Low Light mode, can be used in 2.7k60p but cannot in 4k30p or 2k30p.

Low light mode automatically drops the shutter speed when any shutter speed higher than (and including) 60FPS is selected.  This is because the higher the shutter speed, the lower the amount of light gets to the camera sensor.  So Auto Low light is not selectable on 30FPS because that's the lowest setting that Auto low light can select.

 

2: When 4k60p is selected, the Slo-Mo will be forced enabled. By disabling the Slo-Mo, 4k60p will be set to 4k30p.

It depends on what you're using for playback.  Some programs will automatically play 60FPS @ 30FPS giving it a slow motion effect, others will play it back at 60FPS.

 

3: In 4k60p Slo-Mo, Low Light can be enabled, but in 4k30p (without Slo-Mo) it cannot

Re: need a function limitation list

Thanks for your information.

For the 2, when Slo-Mo is set, the file will record 60 fps in a second but the player will treat is as 30 fps, so it works like a slo-mo. am I right?

Re: need a function limitation list

Yup, if you're recording at 60FPS and it's only playing back at 30FPS then you're getting a 1/2 speed slowmo
