f/3.8, 1/60, ISO 500, 20mm:
100% crop details are very fine:
In this example video you will notice my sweet little nephew – my model doing what babies do, having the aperture set to f/3.5 (the widest the kit lens can go). It creates a nice blurred background effect but the settings can only be changed before the video is shot. The subject also blurs due to recording video with single AF hence you can hear the “autofocus noise” and witness the auto refocusing.
When outside on a breezy day; you may notice the mono microphone picking up a lot of wind in the background. The sound settings can be adjusted unless you have a sheltered external microphone. Coupled with constant autofocusing noises and repeated refocusing we wouldn’t give this camera any major awards for video. In a controlled setting however, with proper lighting and equipment, the D3200 can achieve beautiful results – high contrast and exceptional colour reproduction to give an example.
We had a very late spring in our city and most of the days have been overcast, so our video sample isn’t anywhere near as good as others. Just sit back and enjoy the “lovely” Winnipeg weather.
