CAMERA SETTINGS


OIS IMAGE STABILITY
The mobile cams need "Image Stabilization" to combat the over shaky nature of being handheld.  Make sure that the "shaky hand" icon is displayed, see pics below.  To turn on and off use the OIS, also shown below.

GAIN SWITCH
There are three levels of gain.  Typical gain level will be set to MEDIUM for production.

Focus / Zoom / Iris Wheels

The Focus, Zoom, and Iris wheels are located here.

Typically a mobile op would use auto focus, but when manual focus is needed, pop the switch to manual focus.

WHITE BALANCE (A VS B)
White Balance on a camera will adjust colors to make skin tone look natural depending on the light subjects are lit with.  If subjects on stage look too 'cool' or 'blue' use White Balance B.  If they look to 'warm' or 'orange' use White Balance A.
White Bal A or PRST: STAGE
White Bal B: BAPTISM
