Hi

I normally film using auto settings and have been very happy with the results.
However I a couple of days time I will be filming waterfalls in an enclosed wooded location.
I would like a milky water affect as in the pictures below of the same location.
I don't need to know the full technicalities of why I do these things, but would like to know recommended camera settings in manual mode.?

Much appreciated.

You will probably need a high-value ND filter to get a slow enough shutter speed. I have not done it with my MP but have seen the results of others. You may need to turn off your downward sensors since the moving water could cause problems. Hopefully, you will have good enough GPS reception in that canyon to keep it stable.
