Should I record 10 or 12 bit RAW in low light - Varicam LT to Odyssey 7Q

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'll be shooting a film using my Varicam LT, going either 12 bit or 10 bit 4K RAW to my Odyssey 7Q+.  At a conference I frequented a while back with Alistair Chapman, he pointed out that it is better to shoot 10 bit RAW in low(er) light vs. 12 bit.  [Notwithstanding I get "low light" is a pretty general term, and Chapman is a Sony user].  

I would like to better understand the specifics of why, but I am unable to find any info.  Can anyone clarify ? Or direct me to somewhere that does?  Or have any experience with this?

Thanks !
