Re: Bad video quality on 60d

Shouldn't you be shooting with 1/120 shutter speed if you are in 60p mode, if you were shooting at 30p mode then you would use 1/60. 180 rule
Go for the lowest ISO you can get away with, more often that not on a hot sunny day that is iso100. Which usually leaves you to set the apperture value to get the correct exposure. Depending on the light that could be anywhere from 5.6-22. As i have just found out filming in the Caribbean. You will find obviously that if you shoot the 60p with the shutter speed correct at 1/120 then you can use a lower apperature value, but you will lose that cinematic look. UYou can see that change immediately in the viewfinder with the different settings.

ND filters or polarizers help with getting rid of some light, allowing you to stop down the aperture and get a bit more depth of field.
