Sony A7 video tips for recording my own elopement wedding ceremony on jetty

Recommended Posts

Hi , I would love to get some advice about filming my own elopement wedding ceremony on a jetty . We will have no guests or family or photographers. Just us and the celebrant. I own two Sony A7 Bodies , a heap of Nikon ais prime lenses . I have a Rhode wireless go Microphone coming.  Was thinking one camera / tripod on 35mm and the other one  further Down the jetty  maybe with an 85mm all prefocused  on yellow tape marks where we will be standing on jetty.  Anyone got any advice on settings for a nice cinematic look ?  Experience photographer but complete rookie video guy. Thanks Dave

    • 1. Yes.  C1 setting is under Camera 2->Custom Operation1 (8/9)->Custom Key->Top.  Zoom option is under menu #17. 2. Yes (I'm assuming by "water-gauge" you mean the level indicator).  EVF display settings are under Camera 2->Display/Auto Review1 (6/9)->Finder.  There will be a check box list, check Level.  When the EVF is active press the Disp button on the back wheel to cycle through the display settings. 3. No. Too bad Sony doesn't make the menu system update-able
    • Got my A7S III yesterday, it's amazing all around, being able to AFC with the sigma mc 11 and canon lenses while recording was HUGE,  and didn't know it since everyone on youtube were trying on native lenses.   Only think that has bugged me a bit is that I went to film a wedding today, and from 750 video files at least 15 or them are vertical (1078x1920) not sure if this was because of having it on the strap and starting to record before time or something..   Does someone kno
    • How is it not really 4k if a crop is involved? 4k only needs 8.3 MP's, so the 12 MP sensor of the A7Siii has pixels to spare. This also relates to Chrissies point: in full-sensor readout the A7Siii downsamples from 4240 by 2385 pixels (10.1 MP) to 3840 by 2160 pixels (8.3 MP). In 120p-mode it reads directly from 3840 by 2160 pixels, hence the 10% crop (1 - 3840/4240 = 9.4%). So yes, it uses about 18% less sensor area in 120p than in 60p but still uses real 4k input.
    • Measure twice and cut wrong is more my style! I think I'd prefer the manuals if they came on paper, but age, and the sheer amount of stuff that machines do these days, has robbed me of much of the pleasure of ploughing through the entire thing.
    • This is good to read, i have order the 70-180 and it should arrive this week. I have read nothing but positive reports so far so hope it lives up to expectations. I will use it for portraits, landscapes and some low light sports so hoping its up to the task !
