Video shooting on Nikon D780
I share my experience of owning (more than 1.5 years) a Nikon D780 professional SLR camera. And above all, the possibilities of video shooting
on a Nikon D780. Using examples of a selection of videos I shot, I show and tell about the features of focusing, stabilization, sound recording, as well as
video shooting modes. Interesting examples show the Nikon D780 5-fold video deceleration mode.
Those who watched my short video about the possibilities of video shooting on an amateur Nikon D7000 camera with a professional lens, probably
noted the significant disadvantages of this camera. Firstly, in the conditions of room lighting, the camera focuses with problems and not only
slowly, but also often misses the first time and periodically uses focusing back and forth and this is on static objects, and it's better to
forget about dynamics in general.
For example, look at a fragment of a recording made in Victory Park on a Nikon D7000 with a standard microphone and a Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 lens. And if the picture for home video is normal, then the sound … alas and ah.
Conclusion, the Nikon D7000 is suitable only for static shooting in street lighting conditions, or for shooting with a constant focal length,
or with a remote microphone, but this is already a studio.
And what about the professional Nikon D780? The commercial distributed by the manufacturer promised a lot of goodies, but to believe advertising
in our time is even stupider than to believe a gypsy fortune-teller.
It turns out that the Nikon D780 consists of two full-fledged cameras: a DSLR and a mirrorless camera. It is clear that video shooting can only be done in Live View mode. And here the capabilities of the Nikon D780 are significantly higher than almost all the brand's mirrors that came out before it. In this mode, focusing can be carried out over the entire area of the frame at 273 points, the focus mode on the face and even on the eyes is also supported, but it works at a fairly close distance or, more correctly, at a fairly close-up. Autofocus is fast and not so demanding on lighting.
However, if we compare the modes of photography, then Live View noticeably loses to the "SLR Camera" mode. Autofocus is slower, and if you can
catch carefree frolicking children in the DSLR, then Live View is beyond your strength. And he reacts to the descent, like modern cars to
gas, with a pause. The dynamic plot has already changed several times during this time. And all this, of course, with expensive lenses
for 1000 and even 1500 $. I am sure that if you put it for 10000$, then nothing will change either.
And as for the sounds from the autofocus motor, it will not be possible to use a regular microphone yet. The option with a microphone on the
"Hot Shoe" is better. I suggest you listen to a fragment of the recording. Though not too loud, but audible. For home video, perhaps it will do,
but the camera is professional. It's a shame to sell such a thing. To prevent sounds from being recorded, you should set the microphone at
least a meter away from the lens. The only improvements are that autofocus works clearer and misses less often and there is practically no
endless yuzan. Well, the Nikon D780 has fewer requirements for lighting.
And most importantly, what about stabilization? It is not available in the video recording mode. From the word at all. As you know, lenses with
a Nikon F mount have built-in optical stabilization, but it only works for photos, it is not active in video shooting. Fixing the camera in manual
mode is not an easy task and requires practicing complex skills. Sometimes I did it, but if exclusive shots appear, such as when I met a fox cub
in Lenin Hills, then you start to get nervous and you can't hold the camera.
I will briefly go through the video shooting modes in the Nikon D780. The camera can shoot in 4K mode 24 and 25 fps and in HD mode from 24 to 120 fps. There is also a slow-motion mode. Deceleration is possible up to 5 times, however, when shooting in slow motion, the sound is not written. As for slowing down. Then 5-fold is not very slow, but the camera shake in this mode is imperceptible.
Another feature is that the video can be shot both from the full frame and in crop mode, with constant resolution. In other words, the video quality does not change, but only the focal length of the lens changes. If the subject is far away and the zoom is no longer enough, or it is not optimal to increase the zoom, for example, the minimum aperture increases greatly, then you can increase the focal length by one and a half times due to this trick.
Let's summarize the results. An empty Nikon D780 camera is like an expensive car in the database – one frustration, but … But this thing can be retrofitted. Retrofit according to your requests and make a rather fancy thing out of it, I would say a cool monster. The same camera can be used both as an uncompromising DSLR and as an advanced video camera. Expensive? Expensive. But you don't have to buy everything from scratch every time. After all, so far no one has managed to refute the rule: A miser pays twice, a stupid one pays three times, and a sucker always pays.
