DSLR Video tips by Michael Fletcher Part A 2

Thanks to those of you who attended Michael’s first DSLR Video workshop ” The Moving Landscape ” . Sorry to the people who tried to book after it had been sold out. We are in the process of getting another course together.

It was an informative and inspiring day, it was great to see and hear how he created such a unique stunning body of work. As promised we’ve been able to post some of Michael’s insights into what settings to use with his favorite camera the Canon 5D MkII.

Part A covers the custom settings recommended

C.Fn II :Image Settings

Long Exp. Noise reduction — Off

High ISO speed noise reduct’n — Disable

Highlight tone priority — Disable, Enable will add grain

Auto Lighting Optimizer — Disable

Part B will posted later this week, which covers the “Picture Style Settings” which is so important to getting the best starting point for your videos.
