Thanks for that attachment Sean. The top frame of that example image with the white couch, white suit, bright background - and then the guy with the dark suit in the shot TOO is exactly the type of situations I have been struggling with. So far the best I have done is nailed the brightest of the whites, but basically destroyed any blacks.

Thanks brother

Eric, don't be so sure you've destroyed the blacks, it's often amazing how much you can pull out of the shadows on video cameras, particularly if it's a camera with low noise levels.

here's another post of Tim's discussing the benefits of the using the "wide" scene settings.
http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showpost....4&postcount=29

There's more on his dvd (shameless plug). This would be very much the same intent as the BBC setup guidelines posted here from how I understand both descriptions.

It really makes sense, but all too frequently, I have either no hand in post, or limited budget to deal with the time of rendering out a long form color correction in post, so go WYSIWYG.
For projects kept under my own wing, and more critical work this is a logical way to go.
