    The most I ever do with video is push the red button and take whatever it spits out. I figure as long as it's as good as my Betamax it'll be fine. :p I have need for some low light settings that will see limited use. This will be on a Sony A7 IV, but I am assuming (probably incorrectly) that...

    I'm probably doing something wrong - I wanted to post two separate FS ads, and it seemed like posting the second one caused the first one to disappear. I went through the process twice, same result. Is there a rule that says only one ad at a time? I read the B&S Rules but I missed it if there is.
