I have a Nikon D5000 and would like to use it to take video clips.
By default, when shooting video clips in the "Live View" mode, you can only use 1 MP of the camera's 12 MP, thus you get video clips in a crappy resolution. In addition, you can't use apertures smaller than f/8. Also Live View doesn't respect shutter speeds. Instead, it uses ISO adjustment to move exposure, and it does so in third-stop increments that can look "jumpy" on the LCD (and in movies).
How can I avoid all of these things? Is there a way to take video clips on the D5000 without being in Live View mode?
My information comes from this website: http://www.bythom.com/nikond90review.htm
Thanks in advance!
