Indoor shooting and filters......yes , I know

but bear with me, I'm green

Will be videoing my daughters gymnastics meet and would like to know which filter/s would be best to use with my xl1s.

I'm feverishly reading as much as I can to progress technically but sometimes I still get cold feet when it comes to making purchases.

Standard indoor flourescent lighting will abound.

Also, will frame movie mode be o.k even considering that the little curtain climbers will be moving around a lot. Delivery will be on DVD. It's non-formal and I'm using the experience to get some practice. I'm still figuring out this intrigueing science. I get all giddy when I learn new crap; like how to calibrate my NTSC monitor. What fun!

Hello Bryan,
Off-hand, based on you description, I'd say no filters would be required. If you simply manually white-balance to the room's lighting you should be good to go on that front.

Frame mode will be fine for such an event. Keep your shutter speed at 1/60 if possible. Manage your exposure manually with your iris. Go just a bit higher with shutter if the room is dark and you cannot get good exposure with just the iris. But try not to travel over 1/100.

Have fun!

I think you made a small error there Ken. If the room is darker
you will lower the shutter to 1/30 or 1/15 for example instead
of going to 1/100 (which will eat more light). Or am I misreading
your post?
