Filming fisheye at night with an HVX
« on: October 12, 2022, 05:30:45 AM »
Hi y'all, so I've been filming for a while but I never liked filming at night so I never did it but it happened to me recently that I had to do itand my question is how do I film at night with a fisheye? Because it happens that sometimes the image goes out of focus and this doesn't happen during the daytime. Is there a setting that I gotta change or something?

Switch to manual focus once the image is in focus. There might be a focus lock switch too so you don't accidentally adjust the focus once it's set.

if you have to increase the gain for lower light youre going to get a lower image quality which may help it look more out of focus. id recommend not using auto focus because the cameras going to try to refocus very often because of what it can and cannot see due to lighting; also try using as much external lighting as you can so you do not have to increase your gain. im still pretty new to HVX so im not the best on lighting methods but i hope this helps.

Honestly, if you put a pretty decent LED on a head lamp, you're good to go. Just familiarize your self with your follow routine and have fun.
