p.1 #1 · D7000 video/live view question


The other day I was shooting a video on my D7000 in M mode and noticed that there is no exposure meter (+0- level gauge) on the live view screen or the top LCD. So how is one to know if the exposure is good? Is there something I need to turn on to get this or does it not feature this?

Seems like this camera you just let the camera do the work because Manual mode is pretty useless, can't even change the aperture without leaving live view and can't use auto ISO

Do the newer Nikons (D600, D800, D4) work better in video mode.

Do you have full manual control?
Is there a exposure meter you can see when shooting video (hopefully on the live view screen)?
Can you use auto ISO in manual mode?
Can you use a wireless remote to start/stop video recording?

I really miss the 7D I had because I could do all this.

The D7000 lacks an on-screen meter in Live View, along with an exposure preview mode unless in video mode. The D800 adds both an on-screen meter and histogram, plus an exposure preview mode in either stills or video mode. The D800 also previews aperture changes in Live View without having to exit/re-enter as is necessary on the D7000. I did a video about it here
