Hi, I have a job coming up where we are looking to use Flash packs and timed strobes going off in-frame while shooting at frame rates between 500-1000fps. I am wondering if anyone out there has any advise for what strobes/flask packs to use for this. If flickering can be an issue? Any advise on the matter would be greatly appreciated! Cheers!
Just looking to see what tools each of you use in your metering the exposure of a scene. I currently use a combination of a Minolta MK.IV incandescent light meter and the waveform/histogram from the camera itself (in this digital age). I am looking to use a spot meter more for more accurate readings but I am wondering if I should throw some money down on a Minolta or Sekonic. Or just use the spot metering of my Canon 60d SLR instead. What do you find works the best in metering a scene effectively? Cheers!
Has anyone out there tested the ARRI Alexa XT's Open Gate mode (1.55:1) on 2x Anamorphic Lenses verses a Dragon at (3:2) with Ana's for close to a 3:1 output ratio with cropping? Or even just the two against each other at all. I cant find anything online at all. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Cheers! Karl Janisse
