Thread: Newbie needs advice on camera settings

    Default Newbie needs advice on camera settings

    Firstly hello to everyone and happy new year

    I recently bought a Sony PXW-X70 and am trying to get to grips with it. I'm trying to use it in manual mode in order to get the most out of it and be in full control, but there's one thing I can't figure out.

    I'm filming in 50fps so manually set the camera shutter speed to 100, but on a recent shoot when I flipped the switch from manual to auto the shutter speed changed from 100 to 250 and the iris value also changed. Are there any rules in order to set up the camera properly (iris and shutter speed settings) for the light etc without having to use auto mode. As a novice this is really puzzling.

    Thanks in advance for any help or advice

    Does it have an ISO auto only mode?
