Default Canon MV 700

Hi Guys

I bought a canon MV 700, and want to use it to film RC planes/jets

Anyone else using this camcorder for the same purpose?

What settings have you set to get the best movies ?

Default RE: Canon MV 700


For the best results always

1. Set your recording settings to SP mode this gives the best quality playback. Do not use LP mode unless u are low on tape supplies, LP mode extends the duration of the tape from 30 min to 90mins but the video quality drops by a few grade.

2. Always set your white balance b4 starting to shoot. Otherwise some colours on playback may not turn out as what you see with your eye. Usually do the white balance just before u are about to start shooting. Take an object that seems like pure white to you, set it in front of the camera and look thru your viewfinder. Adjust the white balance settings until the white on the screen looks like the white you see on the item. You can start shooting now!

3. When filmng, make sure you are always shootin the object with the light coming from in front of the object and not behind. This avoids underexposure of your subject and overexposure of the background.

These are some basic handy tips to start shooting. Have Fun!
