What are your experiences-advise?
I shot my first D7000 video last Sunday.
I choose 1280x720 at 30fps because that is what Sony Vegas Studio converts to anyway when you make a DVD for TV.
I used an AF-S Nikkor 28-70 f/2.8 lens for indoor low light and range.
I used a Audio-technica boom mic with very good sound results.
I could not use my Tascam because I could not turn off the in-camera amplifier.
The full time AutoFocus worked exceptionally well in tracking my subject around the stage until the Pastor started walking rapidly back and forth, to and fro, and waving his hands around at the same time.
Then my lens started pumping.
This not only ruined the video but the sound of the lens was picked up as well.
Next Sunday, I will try a fixed lens.
