There is a very easy-to-follow video tutorial for this
Here’s the link: DSLR SETTINGS for VIDEO Settings descriptions starts at 2:00 into the video
Here is a written outline of her steps (except step #1 –those are my settings)
STEP #1 –put your camera into video mode...
Next, set a couple of MENU ITEMS
First, Set Your MOVIE RECORDING QUALITY & FRAME RATE
Go to the MENU button
Pick the first “Red Camera” Icon
go to sub menu #1
Movie Record Quality
Pick: FHD 1920x1080 30fps (again, these are not her settings, but will be best for us...)
Back to MENU button
Red Camera Icon
sub menu#1 SOUND RECORDING –Manual
move the recording levels so that the sound doesn’t “peak” past 12
(this usually means turning the sound down)
That is all for the MENU ITEMS
STEP #2 SET THE SHUTTER SPEED, ISO AND APERTURE/F-STOP
This remains constant –it should be double the “frame rate” of your recording.
In our situation, we are shooting at 30fps, so double that = 60fps...
So, set the Shutter Speed at 1/60th
To do that... press the “info” button
use the touch screen and press the shutter speed box
dial the dial on the back (or top) of the camera -or use the touch screen to change your shutter speed setting.
APERTURE Pick the “widest” Aperture you can on your lens.
This may range from 2.8 to 5.6
Tap the “ISO” box on the touchscreen, move it higher or lower to adjust exposure.
Press the shutter button half-way to bring up the exposure meter at the bottom of the screen.
Use the meter to verify your exposure – you want the little white dot to be in the middle.
LAST STEP –SET YOUR WHITE BALANCE
Go to the “Q” button on the back of the camera.
Press the White Balance icon. Scroll through the various white balance settings to select the color temperature that suits the light you are shooting with.
Better yet, adjust the white balance manually.
There is an easy way to manually set a perfect white balance with a gray card –see video link below. Scroll to about the 2:45 minute mark in the video to skip the intro and get to the process.
