Bright blue colour indicates my preferred settings
Mov files are easy to edit, together with a neutral setting style, customised to minus values for better scope to match shots.
Still on page 1 of the movie menu, the all intra settings can be transferred straight into Edius Pro 7 for real time editing, with the camera in manual mode, with settings saved to C1
Finally on page 1, FRAME RATE is set to OFF for general work.
MOVIE MENU PAGE 2
Page 2 of the menu shows my preferred settings the keep the camera in focus everywhere and at all times without adding too much artificial processing.
Page 3 shows preferred settings again, with saturated areas flashing as I find it easier to detect, rather than looking at the histogram right hand peak, which of course , cannot tell you where in the frame it is.
Finally Pages 4 and 5 concentrate on sound, with mic. level shown at 8, an arbitrary starting out setting to be adjusted as required. Wind cut should always be set to off as otherwise it will effect the frequency response. Only shoot on windy days with a blimp! If using an on camera mic. the silent operation should be set to ON.
