I recently bought a new Sony NX5u and I cannot make up my mind on what recording format should I use between the available 1080/60i, 1080/30p, 1080/24p,720/60p. This is my first experience with a pro video camera and so I would appreciate any information on this.Also does this camera have an auto power off feature? I looked everywhere and I cannot find it. Thank you, Umberto.
It depends on what you are shooting, for example, if you are recording fast movements you can record in 1080/60i or 720/60p. In most situations you can record in 1080/30p and have excellent results.
I honestly wouldn’tshoot in30p or 24punless you’re storing your videos online, or you just want the goodness of 1920×1080 video without it being interlaced.
