Any owners of this HD camcorder who can tell me the best way to adjust for a strong backlight situation in a tent? I have a shoot tomorrow and using this cam for the first time in a tent for speeches. It says it adjusts for backlight automatically but I am not buying that. It has an exposure setting and an iris setting. I'm a little concerned about overexposing the HD footage because this will be my first time using HD.
How did your shoot go? Obviously, the camera doesn't adjust for backlight automatically unless the backlight feature is turned on. You can also increase the auto exposure using the AE SHIFT in the menu to around +3. Let us know how your shoot went.
