    I know that to achieve the lowest amount of rolling shutter you need the shutter at 1/60 of a second for 30P video. Are you guys running running Shutter priority in Video? I know a lot of you like to run Aperature prioritiy for stills or you still using AP for video and then trying to set your AP and ISO to get an approx 1/60? I would think that depending upon sun angles and changing cloud coverage that AP mode would vary the shutter speed quite a bit and your panning could be subject to rolling shutter?

    Second question are you guys experiencing that you need neutral density filters to use a F8 that will give you 1/60?

    Use manual mode if you want consistency. Auto anything will be constantly changing values.

    Don't do video in shutter priority mode. The aperture changes are not smooth and it'll drive you nuts. I use either straight manual, or manual with auto ISO. Lock the white balance, too.

    And yes, ND filters are a must for video.

    I figured that was the way to go, just wanted to get a conscious of what other users are doing.

    You may need to use a GND filter in order to use such shutter speed.

    Actually, Maxis, a GND (graduated neutral density) filter probably isn't ideal. A straight ND is better. Graduated is nice for landscape work, but in the air I'm afraid it'd be really awkward.

    I'm assumng you don't need more than 1.2 for a ND filter? I have a kit that does 0.6, 0.9, and 1.2.

    I have a B&W 0.9 ND and it is perfect for sunny florida, and if its cloudy you don't need one anyway.
