    A simple set up for shooting DSLR video

    Shooting a DSLR video is a straightforward process. Here are the three basic steps to follow…

    How to set up your camera to shoot DSLR video: step 1

    Select Movie mode

    Start recording
    Make sure you’re within range 
to pick up sound, then press the record button – this is usually indicated by a red dot on the camera body. A red dot will also appear on screen to show that you’ve started recording. Press the button again to stop recording.

    Check the movie
    Finally, play your clip back so that you can check that it’s recorded in the way that you were expecting. You will be able to perform very basic edits in-camera, but you’ll have far more flexibility and control over your movie if you do this in video-editing software later.
