Gain with the EX3

Recommended Posts

Im shooting the EX1 camera with the Letus, we have super speed primes on the mount. we are in small practical locations doing small 200's and 650's for control of bounce and spill, so our apature is usually at 1.3 at 0db, we have it on a 23" monitor and it looks ok with our gamma setting to gain up to from 3 to 9Db at times. This way we can get a 4/5.6 split for the AC. Will the image further degrade in post, in grading? Am I safe if it looks cool on the monitor?

Why don't you set a wider aperture? Even a 2.8/4 is pretty comfortable for a 35mm AC and will reduce your gain.

 

At 5.6 you're close to a stop where you might aswell shoot wide open without the adapter. Its not until you shoot open 2.8 that it starts to pay for itself (the adapter)...

Thanks. We got it, just needed to practice the shots a bit.
