Thread: Should I ever use movie mode??

    Default Should I ever use movie mode??

    I'm using a brilliant XM2 an I love it but I wondered if I should ever use movie mode or not.

    The reason I ask this is because I'm also in a band and over time I'd like to edit all the footage I've collected and turn it into a kind of documentry. Should I record all this in Movie Mode or convert it later through my Sony Vegas software. Can you acheive the same results?

    I guess the answer is yes and no!

    It all depends on what your final output medium will be.

    Why don't you do a test shoot using movie mode and standard mode and take this to your final output. That way you will be able to judge for yourself if the end result is what you need. This way you have the added beenfit of knowing the answer in advance of your 'real' shoot.

    Good luck

    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc
