Must have been before my time.

I don't know if that time ever existed. Look at film noir. The high contrast, shadowy look came about specifically because of lower budgets on B movies. It didn't mean that movies became bad. It was an opportunity for directors to find new creativity within the imposed constraints.

Frankly, if cameras need less and less light, we can apply the same quality lighting at a lower cost (fewer watts required.) Good lighting is more about the size, color, and direction of light, rather than watts.

The one place where we are always challenged is when trying to compete with the sun. HDR changes that equation for certain shots. (Not that HDR is available on the C300, but it's here in EPIC and is likely to become available on more cameras in the future.)

Now back to our regularly scheduled program. This thread is about the C300 Demo, Sword....

Re: C300 Demo: Sword by Félix Alcalá and Larry Carroll

It's also about balancing the lighting levels, which may or may not involve a lot of watts. It surprising the wattage levels being used on sets where they've got pretty sensitive cameras. Soft lighting tends to need more watts than direct hard lighting, you can have low light levels, but quite few large HMIs creating it.

Thanks guys, but I was being somewhat facetious in regard to Henry's fears.

Re-reading it, I now catch the facetious comment. :)
