Z7 settings for wildlife documentary

Hi all,

I guess this is not a very intelligent question but I am still in this stage of asking silly questions....)-:

Got my Z7 (PAL) but haven't managed to use it yet. I am going to use it with the Nikon 80-200 still zoom lens. I need this combo for wildlife filmmaking. (got the Nikon adapter, support system, follow focus, tripod and fluid head - still looking for a matte box)


My question is what settings should I use in order to get the footage I can later convert to HD or the format best suited for broadcasting.

Your serious input is highly appreciated,

Cheers,
Ofer Levy, nature photographer
