Re: [TCML] Tesla Coil Video Problems

I am trying to do video I can't do a longer exposure. Can't lock focus and no night mode either for video. Maybe that option is on more $$$ cameras but this $100 digital video camera does not have those options.  Nothing in the instruction book about that so I assume it does not have it.
