Hi Adam,

In addition to using +6db and opening wide on the iris, you can also gain an extra level of exposure by shooting at 1/30th (rather than 1/60th) of a second in Frame Mode. Your video will certainly have more of a "film look" due to the motion signature, as opposed to shooting at 1/60th in standard Movie Mode - but you just may like the look. Lots of people like that look too, it's just up to you to decide if it is appropriate for your project. Do some tests beforehand.

Good luck!
