EX-3 setting recommendation
on Jan 11, 2009 at 1:59:20 am

Most of my shooting with the EX-3 is automobile dirt racing. Most of the time it is at night. The lighting varies as the cars go around the track. Some of the tracks have dark spots and light spots. The speed of the cars many times is way over 100 MPH. (Super Late models are at over 120 MPH)
My B roll camera is a Zu1 and shoots HDV 1440X 1080i. This camera is mostly used for interviews and pre race activities The end product is SD DVD. The ZU1 is also my back up camera if the EX were to have a problem. The editing platform is Edius 5.01

What settings would you recommend
shutter speed?
interlaced 60i or progressive 30p? SP or HQ mode?
auto iris or manual? (keeping in mind the speed of the cars and the ever changing lighting conditions)
white balance manual or auto?

What I have been shooting is the following
Shutter speed 1/60
interlaced 60i 1440X1080i SP mode
auto iris
manual white balance
