Nikon D3100 Low Light Video Test Indoors with the Nikon 35mm f1.8G

Nikon D3100 Video with the Nikon 35mm f1.8G

Ella was gracious enough to let me film her having lunch, so I took the opportunity to test the Nikon D3100 video indoors in lower light.

Shooting with the Nikon 35mm f1.8G you get the advantage of f1.8 to get a boatload more light to the sensor which allows you to keep your ISO down.

hi,what settings did you use? auto mode?

Yes, unlike it's big brother, the Nikon D7000, the D3100 doesn't allow you manual control when shooting video. Basically the camera takes over and goes into full auto mode when doing video, no matter what shooting mode you're in (i.e. Manual, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority, etc.)
