    Video + Consistent Exposure Level

    I do some product videos using my D5300. When i shoot the footage (1080p at 60fps) I do it with the products placed on a white backdrop which has some subtle branding on it (which looks great when the depth of field means its slightly blurred but the branding is still visible) - I've got a couple of LED lights.

    I set my D5300 to manual, set the F stop to a decent balanced level and it looks great BUT when I pan left/right beyond the product in frame but more notably when I pan/zoom in and out the exposure increases or decreases ultimately resulting in quite a brightness change of the background. At times the background is completely blown out and others, really dark.

    Is there any way to set the exposure at a fixed value so it doesn't increase/decrease or is there another way to over come this issue?

    Would more light from an additional source to light the background work as a fix?
    Would it be better off doing the product video on a green background (rather than the current white which is obviously reflective) and then use chroma key in post?

    Welcome to the forum. I'm guessing you probably have ISO set to auto and it is changing as you move the camera. Try a manual ISO setting.

    I'd say auto ISO is the issue as well.
    Don't mind me... I'm out roaming around somewhere between Zone III and VII.

    Go forth and actuate!
