Good settings for coporate interviews?

Hello,

I just bought the HMC-150 yesterday and hope to get it in the next few weeks.

I have to do some corporate interviews for a friend next month. What settings make sense for such an event?

It will be used for web use only.

I was thinking 720 - 60p or 1080 - 30p.

What do other people use for interviews?

I never had a camera that does 720 - 60p. Sounds great though I would assume be better for action shots than a simple interview.

Where are these interviews to be conducted--indoors, outdoors, what kind of setting, lighting, etc?

How would that impact your decision, Steve?

Hello,

The interviews would be inside an office room. The person being interviewed would be sitting down.

We would provide typical lighting (key light, back light and a reflector).

Again, this would be for web use only.

Just wondering what others do in this situation.

Thanks,

Simon

Hi,

Yes, just did an interview this week with 1080 - 30p. Results were EXCELLENT! I used automatic settings.

I also use Prospect HD (cineform) which is great for correcting lighting and colors.

I highly recommend it.
