Heya guys, I'm green as grass and don't know much about filming. Apart from tutorials from Film Riot and Fenchel & Janisch. I got meself a brand new D7100 and I'm now thinking theres something wrong with the camera itself.
Here is an example of video shot with this camera. https://vimeo.com/105914575 another vid here
Image is flat 1/125 f1.8 iso 100 1080i 60fps It's pretty terrible at day, it's even worse at night
What could it be? How You call this distortion or whatever it is? Thanks!!
Generally speaking, you should leave the shutter speed at 50 when shooting video. You might also find that 400 is more like the D7100's 'native' setting, going higher in low light and lower (or drop an ND filter on) when it's brighter. Try those and see how you get on. Other than the focus not really following the subject, I'm not sure what distortion you're referring to. An f-stop around f3.5/f4 should make it easier to keep a moving subject sharp - f1.4 really is very shallow. Are you depending on the camera to auto-focus?
