Apologies of this is in the wrong place. Looking for a bit of advice. I've been asked to film a short video at night of a bonfire.

Itll be the first time I've taken the anafi out at night and not sure about exposure settings etc. Has anyone got any recommendations or tips for a decent balance and not having the the fire overly exposed and losing detail elsewhere.

Thanks

First thing I would try is to hand hold the Anafi on Auto exposure pointed at a fire at night and use the EV button up and down its entire range. If you get what you want great.....if not, go into Pro mode and play with exposure and ISO. Remember that if the camera is pointed at the fire and then at the surroundings, the exposure will vary wildly. Keep it centered on the fire while it's flying around.

I would turn the setting to manual
Change ISO and shutter speed accordingly, by way of the meter. Just move your finger across to right back to left you will see how the settings change the picture.
Do the same for the shutter speed and you are sorted.
Aputure is fixed
If you get grey lines on you screen turn off "show over exposure" in settings.
Regards
Dont forget Anafi takes pics in RAW for best editing
