Does the longer zoom from the 1/3" sensor make up for worse low-light performance? What is your use case?
Asked by: Cale
I bought it for the long zoom but I use it in a church with plenty of theater lighting. It’s set to zero gain at f4 and I get a clean image.

how to choose recording formats?

how to choose recording formats?
Asked by: Maarten
If your footage might be used for Television in the United States or other countries that broadcast in NTSC, select 30 fps (frames per second) drop frame that shows up as 29.97. If your country uses PAL, use a different setting. For a more cinematic look, use 24 fps (or 23.98) which matches how film moves through the camera for most uses. To achieve a slo-mo effect, increase the frame rate. so when it plays back everything appears to move more slowly.

question

Is it parfocal lens? Did you get an item on display yet to see if the lens rings have hard stops (pictures show numbered rings)?
Asked by: Anonymous
I thought it wasn't because, from the factory, the back focus on mine was off. So I would zoom in, focus, zoom out and focus would be off. I found good instructions online for how to use the auto back focus calibration and it's been good since then.
