No Choice

Steven,

Thank you so much for all of your posts and clips. My question to you is what if you have to film something and it is darker than the camera likes. What steps would you take to improve the image without having to go past a gain of +6? Specifically, how would you adjust your vividrgb preset to accommodate for a low light situation (i.e. wedding ceremony) wihtout adding additional lighting or grain?

Spectacular intro to a film. I'm definitely thinking thriller with murderer at large in the city.

Great abstract effects on the night shots. And a very cool candid of the old man crossing the street.

Thank you Trish, very much appreciated.

Jonathan, I simply wouldn't use VIVIDRGB for low light situations. It was developed for relatively well-lit environments. I would probably shoot flat, one of the factory presets or one of the low light presets posted on this board.

Simply outstanding... the opening shots are great, what about the custom preset you used? Any CC?
