    Thank you so much man; I’ve been considering using this camera to make some short films (and possibly a feature somewhere down the road), but the exposure was really making me cautious about using it. Now that I know how to set it so it doesn’t change, I can worry about other stuff…like grain that seems to appear in my video even though it’s well lit…any suggestions on that? 😛

    i have a question to ask? does this camera allow u to focus when you bring things up close while filming? if it does.. PLEASE teach me!!!!!!!!!!! i been dying to know.. and one last things how do you change you focus to another.. for example like shooting one things that is close to you and then shooting the background and fading the things that you were shooting early????

    really really helpful, but i thought that it’s a bad thing to lock the exposure, i mean like the test shot u took at the end, when the camera was panning and the window appears, i couldn’t see anything in the window cuz it was so bright,
    isn’t this a bad thing or this looks more professional
    or do u recommend locking the exposure like this or use this function only in some situations ?
    i’m sorry for those question but i’m a newbie and i wanna learn everything 😀
    thanks 🙂
