HDR CX760V

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My camera constantly shoots underexposed dark video. I shoot in auto exposure and iris. In daylight the footage is always underexposed. Why? How do I correct this? If I go to manual what would be the best setting? In manual how much is perfect?

This is the way you should shoot with the 760: Fix the shutter at 1/60th in manual mode. Then set the control knob to AE shift. Control the exposure with the knob to get the exposure you want. Simple, and you get excellent video. Any underexposure is then your fault smile.gif.

hi Mark - I followed your instructions and stopped down AE shift to -1.0. Video is now too hot, overexposed. I'll experiment with manual AE shift and a higher shutter speed.

Yes, this is the problem we all have in video - in bright sun and low (the correct 1/60th) shutter speeds there can be overexposure. The best thing to do is to get an ND filter. I have found in the absence of an ND 1/125th shutter does the trick, and the video does not look noticeably studdery.

But we solved the underexposure problem!
