Reply To: Lighting: would like guitar strings & fretboard to be a touch clearer


I can set the shutter speed manually; it was set at 1/30. I’m not sure i can set the aperture manually but there are presets like portrait, night, snow, sunrise etc… The Canon HG21 has auto focus also but I’ve read it’s better to manually set it, especially if your hands are constantly moving. As for FPS it seems the highest it can go is 24fps. I did try shooting another video just to test different shutter speeds and focus…also, removed the wide angle lens, but the outcome was the same, though it was late in the day. I will experiment tomorrow late morning & early afternoon and will post another pic.
