Panasonic Lumix ZS100 Concert Settings for Video
« on: April 28, 2017, 09:32:20 AM »
I am in search of finding the most ideal settings to record Rock Concerts at the Rail using the Panasonic ZX100. In the past I have always used the Sony Line RX100 M3, M4 and M5 but has always dealt with overheating issues. This became a major issue earlier this week when my RX100 M5 developed an issue of shutting down unexpectedly constantly result in damaged videos.

My preferred recording option is at 1080 60p 50m on the Sony and would like to use similar settings for the video quality.

I am also interested in what are the ideal settings which would keep camera in focus and create the most vivid output.

Also if anyone has any suggestions on what other cameras are comparable with Sony Rx100 M5 in quality.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I have my ZS100 in manual mode so I can adjust the aperture and shutterspeed on the fly. I also have my focus on manual so I can use the lens ring when necessary.

I tend to shoot in 4K 30p, but the only major pitfall is that you lose optical stabilization shooting in 4k on the ZS100

I set the aperture at f5.9 since that's the lowest aperture you can get zoomed all the way in. It prevents having the video get brighter as you zoom out

I have the shutterspeed at around 50 or 60 because that's the optimal range when shooting 30p. I micro-adjust as low as 30 if things get darker at a show or crank it to 80 or higher if an intense spotlight comes on (but only after I've closed the aperture to the max f8)

How I focus is by customizing one of the buttons on the back of the camera to do an auto focus and periodically autofocus again as the subject moves around the stage. If the autofocus screws up, the focus ring is there in an emergency.

Now that's a coincidence! I messaged him a couple hours ago telling him some of that stuff as well, if you want to check out my stuff I have shot with the ZS (TZ100 in Europe), here are many clips (all from Gojira Rockavaria May 29th 2016 onwards, you have to scroll down a few times to get there): https://www.youtube.com/user/blubbaiu/videos

if you have a tripod or a solid mount of some sort, turn OFF the image stabilization.
