My CAMERA & AUDIO settings for filmmaking and vlogging
In this video I'm going to go over how I set up my Nikon DSLR to get a flat picture image quality which is a) close to getting the film look in a DSLR and b) easier to color correct/color grade in post-production.
I also go over how I set up my microphones and external recorders since sound is way more important than video.
This is a topic I always have questions on and usually spend so much time researching it, so now all the information is in one place and hopefully it will help all of you too!
Thanks for watching!
