Best Video Settings G85 GX85 GH7
Best setting for making great video on your Panasonic mirrorless camera. This will work with most cameras for reference. He is using a LUMIX G85 but this applies to GX85, GX80, GX7, GX8, FZ2500, GH5, GH4, and many more.

Caleb Pike of DSLR Video shooter gives use this super breakdown on how to get different looks when filming with your Panasonic.

He helps with depth of field, blurring with frame rates, making your videos clear and sharp with fast frame rates and much more.

Explanation of the Settings:

The Shutter Speed:
This controls how Long light hits the sensor each second. Also controls motion blur effects.
Saving Private Ryan is a great example of how a fast shutter speed can be used for tension.
The Bourne movies are a great example of slow shutter speeds (when Jason is dreaming/remembering his past).
180 Degree rule explanation.

The Aperture:
This controls how MUCH light hits the sensor. Also controls depth of field or how much of the shot is in focus.

The ISO:
This controls the sensitivity (brightness) of sensor. Noise can be introduced at high ISO levels so try to avoid those.

Using These Settings to get desired effect:

1) Set shutter speed for desired look (180 rule is applied when I shoot most of the time)

2) Set aperture for desired depth of field.

3) Use ISO to make final exposure changes.
