Rainy, dark, dank day here in the Appalachians.
First SOOC. Second, pulled +2 exposure in ACR.
Experimenting with intentional underexposure and pulling in post.
I think the camera metered ISO 6400 if left to its own devices :)

The power of Sony files...that would have been a hot noisy mess on Canon files!

I've had this Conch shell for many years. Unfortunately, the 'wing' that leads to the inside is broken.

I think this CV40/1.2E is going to take a only little getting used to ;)

Question for Charlie (or anyone else that can help) - since you shoot a lot of family footage can you advise what FPS I should use. I have 4K @ 24, 30 or 60. I understand that 24 is cinematic and 60 is super smooth but confused as to what one I should use? Do I just use 60 as it’s the best quality? Video is confusing!

24 fps is the same frame rate movies are shot in, so you get that cinematic view.

30 and 60 have more of a lifelike look to it....more so at 60 fps because its smoother

So is there a best choice for family memories? Or does it depend on the scenario and the light levels?

I've been researching this very topic for video on my mavic. The answer is it depends. 24fps gives you a more cinematic look. 30fps is more like real life and 60fps is great if you want to slow down your footage. Experiment and have fun!

60fps would be a better choice for fast moving objects I would think. Don't forget to shoot some slo-mo at 120fps too. I believe that is for 1080p max though. Of course, you can up-res that to 4k depending on your software.

Mb per second also matter, the higher the better but that also increases the overall video file size.

What do you find yourself shooting and how much post do you do? With Sony I used 24, mainly because the 30 crops in. They don’t do 4k60 yet. With my Z6 I used 4K30 since there’s no crop like on the Sony does. 4k30 allows me to shoot with 1/60 shutter speed which allows me to shoot indoors at a lower iso. When I shoot 60, I need to shoot at 1/125 but indoors sometimes it’ll raise my ISO too high for my comfort.

Today took my daughter to a ninja gym which was dimly lit for the first time and shooting 4k30 and 1/60 allowed me to keep it at iso2000 or so indoors. If I boosted it to 1/125 I would’ve probably been closer to 6400 at times.

Also if you’re like me and shoot a lot of video but don’t edit it, 30 is good to use. 60 will give you the flexibility for slow mo, but if you don’t edit much, it’ll be for not and just add to your file size.

It's mostly a stylistic preference. I shoot at 24fps because I like the cinematic look. The choppiness of 24fps is a pretty unique quality. 30/60fps while smoother, looks more 'video camera' like to me.

Don't know much about video but have done some reading. I've experimented a bit and have settled on 24 FPS for the reasons that Carlo mentions....kinda that cinematic look.

I have been shooting in 60fps and the only time I can see that changing is if I'm in such low light than I need the extra stop by dropping to 30fps.

I prefer playing my games at 60fps and the same games for my video.
