Re: Outdoor video with fast lens, striking the right balance

Yes, for the most part I don't want to be running shutter speeds of 200, etc., or higher to get a proper image. It just seems to make more sense to run with an ND filter.

I run in full manual as of now, and for the most part I'm trying to stay in the 50-80 fps range.

That is correct, other than ISO - it's all Manual, or all Auto.

It think Sigma needs to come up a DSLR video oriented zoom that incorporates their "filtermatic" (some old Sigma lenses have a selector wheel with built-in filters).

Re: Outdoor video with fast lens, striking the right balance

Most of the fast lenses still look really darned good when stopped down a bit.

Aside from that, running full manual, nothing beats a fader ND. Mine is from Genus, not as smooth as the Singh-Ray "Vari-ND" but still a dang site easier than carting about a pocketful of screw-on filters.
