I'm using the Steadicam Merlin. Pain in the rear to use, but when you get it working correctly you get some great shots.
Patrick,

As Jeff mentioned, you'll see text in the lower left of the LCD & EVF indicating AF & AE are locked, AND a green dot in the upper right.

Good luck

My least favorite thing is the mechanical wheel on the top right of the body. Each settting seems to totally change the menu options and there are so many setting on the wheel that I'll never use. I only ever use "M" for stills and "M+camera icon" for video. I should put white out on the other functions.

I've accidentally bumped that mechanical wheel too, then I go to menus and I'm in the twilight zone because nothing looks as it's supposed to.

Re: Analyze my footage...why the varying light?

Thanks, Brian, that's what I've been saying! Camera is phenomenal, but TOO small. I push buttons accidenatlly EVERY time I use the camera, as no matter how you grab it your hand must hit a button.

But you just learn to think on your feet.
