If the situation permits, set camera gain set to low, put most if not all to manual settings. High gain will create more noise in the footage. Normally it would be detrimental to the image unless we’re planning to actually include noise as aesthetics of mood or tone for the film.
Set camera shutter speed to 50. This is to get an approximate filmic look for the video as 50/2 = 25 fps which is near to the speed of a traditional film camera (24fps).
Set recording mode to HDV to get the best quality video from the Z7P.
Set Time and date stamp recording to OFF!
When uploading more than one card to a computer, it is highly recommended to copy the videos into a different bin every time. Because the numbering of the files will get repeated every time a card is cleared and recording begins.
