Join Anthony Q. Artis for an in-depth discussion in this video Using zebra stripes to accurately judge exposure, part of Foundations of Video: Cameras and Shooting.
Now let's talk about a major feature that can help you better judge exposure.…It's very easy to misjudge exposure on a little 3-inch LCD screen, especially when shooting…in daylight. Lucky for you, there are Zebra Stripes.…Zebra Stripes are camera functions that help you judge exposure by superimposing vibrating…diagonal stripes on the overexposed part of the image.…These stripes are only seen on your camera's viewfinder or LCD screen and are never recorded…to tape or even seen or an external monitor.…
Zebra Stripes, like Anthony Artis, are your friend. We're both here to tell you when you're…doing something wrong and help you correct it before it's too late.…To set your Zebra Stripes, look for a button on your camera that says Zebra and turn it on.…On most cameras this button can be found on the side of the camera, usually near the switches…for Gain, Peaking, or White Balance.…On this camera the Zebra button is on the panel under the LCD screen.…
To make sure your Zebra Stripes are setup properly, check your camera's menu for Zebra function.…
