I was at kitsilano beach a few days ago with my friends and decided to record a 720p video of the sun setting. I recorded 20 minutes worth of sunset in 4 parts (cuz HD video is limited to 5 minutes each). When I was putting the clips together in Vegas, I noticed that half way through the 3rd clip the images get brighter despite the sun setting lower.
The only thing I can think of is because its in video mode, the camera attempted to compensate for the amount of light decreasing...but what else could be the cause for this and anyone have any idea how i can prevent this from happening in the future?
