  • Which DSLRs allows full manual exposure in video modes?

    Posted by Doruk Serin on May 10, 2018 at 12:57 am


    I’m a newbie to short films. I look for a DSLR camera for that. I explore internet to find one. I guess i need a cam which allows full manual aperture in movie mode but there is no enough information for which cams do.
    I found a few of Canon models like 550d, 650d, Eos M series or 5d mk ii etc. But it’s still not enough. Can someone tell that which cameras allow full manual exposure in movie mode? I mean for all brands.

    Almost all of them. just change it in the mode. Hope this helps:) In fact, almost all of us use manual exposure and manual focus when shooting video. Auto focus is a boon for vloggers. But manual exposure is pretty important while shooting video.

    Thanks for reply.
    I heared that eos 1100d, nikon d3100 and nikon 5100 doesn’t allow, is that right?

    Most of them. I use ‘M’ mode on my Canon 5D III.
