Shoot Preparation / Infinite focus in low light shooting
« on: November 12, 2019, 03:48:20 PM »
I am looking for some basic tips to have less depth of field in low light situations. Specifically, if my daughter is performing in a mostly darkened room on stage and my camera is on a tripod, what are my best settings to make sure she isn't just in focus on one part of the stage and blown out if she moves forward or back? My goal is infinite focus, which can be tough in low light.

ISO, aperture, and any hidden ML tricks?

Also, perhaps is there a thread with post-processing compression techniques? I don't need 20GB for a kid's play.

Not a heavy user -- just a dad trying to record video of his 5 year old doing her ballet in the dark without having to restart the camera or have a glaring preview screen rolling.

I have installed ML on my 6D (on my 40MB/sec 32GB SD card). Where is this feature (2 features?) I want and how do I use it? Sorry for my ignorance. Searches pulled up a lot of information about much more complex ideas than I'm trying to solve.

Thanks in advance.

Feature Requests / Display OFF during video capture
« on: April 02, 2019, 06:28:40 PM »
I'd like to be able to record video from a tripod (5 year old dance recitals come to mind) without the backlit screen turning on.

1) It's bright and distracting for audience members.
2) It uses battery quicker.
3) The screen is unnecessary when I have a set focal length that won't change.

Is this possible? I have a Canon 6D.

The data transfer blinking light is solved with some tape, but that would be nice to turn off for that specific function.

Thank you.
