Understood. I also teach photography and most of my students have the latest rigs and a few sport the higher-end Canons and Nikons. That’s the standard opening line from my lectures when I hear them say the very things you did. There’s a huge difference between your dedicated video camera and the hybrid you’re using. Not only do you have to contend with working the video, you must have working knowledge of how a still camera operates. The point we all were making is yes, the camera does have ‘auto’ settings but they will only get what they were programed to do. Which BTW, will often not be what you need. The way you get around that is learn how the other functions particularly the Manual settings work and what light conditions call for specific settings. You’ll never do that in Full Auto.
