    Thanks for all the info again guys, I'll check out redusers and certainly check black shading more. Am I right to assume though, even if the shot is underexposed the blacks should not be that noisy? I have shot dark scenes before and never had that much noise, and of that 'kind' so to speak, it looks very 'digitaly' compared to regular RED noise.

    I also have a question regarding noise, specifically on the Dragon. We have shot with this camera before and had no problems, it then got the upgrade to the Dragon and we took it out for a run, and found the RAW footage had tons of noise, especially in the darker scenes. Though, some of the shots didn't have noise at all, mainly the daylight scenes, but some of the daylight scenes did have noise as well. My assistant and I can't think of anything we did differently from previous shoots, apart from use the Dragon, so we're wondering what could cause this amount of noise to be in the image.
  3. When i first read the topic I came here to post this book, so good. Better if you've seen all his films as well it's an amazing 'fly on the wall' listening to two great filmmakers talk properly and in-depth about their craft, no other book for me comes close to being both informative and inspiring. Though not books, I would recommend David Fincher DVD commentaries, Gone Girl and Dragon Tattoo are highlights for me, both incredibly informative on a technical level, as well as about character and working with the actor to get what he wants, and hilarious at times, he's one of those guys I c
  4. This would certainly be ideal! We're shooting in winter now (Australia) and the room gets very little natural light even during the day. If I had the budget I would be lighting form outside only for sure. Actually, perhaps this is off topic, we're shooting a couple of night scenes in a remote area and it's meant to be overcast winter feel, in reality it will probably be close to pitch black since the moon's hidden and there's no city lights, or even an house porch lamp or something, any suggestions? In the back of my head I keep think perhaps we'll have to introduce a house in the distanc
  5. Yes we're heading back out there soon (though the gaffer has not come out yet, nor do i know if he'll be able to!) it's over an hour and half drive, plus it's a school so we're pretty restricted with when we can go by, can't pop in unfortunately, but I'll be checking them. We're going to hire what we need at this stage, it's a bit cheaper than buying, they have what we need in the Philips range. And unfortunately we wouldn't have the budget for LED. The good news is I've managed to get us on location the day before to fit the tubes, so we'll find out before if there's any issues.
  6. Great thanks Phil, will look into that! Ideally not having to gel each bulb (18+ in all) would be good.
  7. Hi, I come here a lot for all the great information you guys dish out! But this is my first post, It's one that has been asked before, but I'm looking for a more up to date specific answer, so any help is appreciated. I'm shooting a class room scene, in the classroom there are over head fluro lights already. Our gaffer is coming with kinos, and has said, with no real confidence, "they should work". So I've been told about needing older 40w globes rather than newer 75w, and this: "a standard fluorescent fixture they will be under driven resulting in less light output and incorrect colo
