Some detail of the skies lost.. Later we found that we need filters (ND & CPL)to keep the shutter down to the minimum (30-60). Just sharing for every video shooters.

What is this filter used for. I still don't quite understand the function of shutter speed in video.

The function is much the same as for stills. It allows you to get proper exposure and control freezing or blurring of motion. In a thirtieth of a second frame rate, the shutter speed might be anything from 1/30 to 1/1000 second or faster, and the results for moving subjects will look dramatically different. For decades we've been accustomed to slow shutter speeds and motion blur in our movies and TV, so that looks natural to us. These days, with higher shutter speed options available, people are often choosing fast speeds instead, as for sports and movie action sequences where every frame is crisp (but the animation appears jumpy).

The purpose of the ND filter is to permit you to use slower shutter speeds instead of being forced into fast speeds when you don't want them.

For a cost effective solution square filters would be a better choice if you have different lenses with varied filter sizes. But fader-nd is indeed nice.

Nice filter, but it is really expensive.
If you look at the following video I made yesterday, you can hear I have a sound problem. I use an external mike but still sounds from me operating the camera can be heard. What can I do to prevent this from happening?

External meaning clipped on top of the camera or off-camera? Clipped on mics are going to pick up noise.

Keep the mic off-camera. Some people use wireless radio mics or completely separate sound recorders. For casual video without the paraphernalia (which is what most of us are going to do), use what you have and avoid jostling the camera.

hi,
I opened up a topic earlier about which alpha to get for video.
A57 or A77. I've set my mind on the A77. But i still want to check for you practical experience whether the A57 would be a better call for video only (in terms of output!) considering the A77 is 24mp vs A57 being 16mp.

Someone made a comment in my earlier post about the downsampling of the 24mp. I wonder what the real world effect of that is?
tnx
chr
