The video exposure responds to the exposure compensation settings. That’s right! You can boost the exposure on the F300EXR. Not a massive amount … but some.
I discovered this today because I just could not believe that there was no way to change the exposure on the video. After all, both the G10 and the ZS3 can do it, so it made sense that something would affect the video levels, and this was it.
So, a short film to demonstrate.
Something to note … the lower range (darkening the video) is not available in low light. I.e. the camera will only go so dark (which as we all know is pretty dark already.) But when in bright light, the full range of adjustments work fine.
