Re: HMC-150 & zebra bars

From what I read, 60 - 70% seems the preferred value for skin tones, although I just have them set for 100 for overexposure and trust my eye for skin tones. (Event work).

Cheers,

Vaughan

Re: HMC-150 & zebra bars

Hi Randy

Normal Caucasian skin tone is supposed to zebra at something like 68% so if you need to expose for skintones then 70 is cool but most of the EVF on a sunny day will show zebras almost all the time!!!

70 would give you very accurate skin exposure but be a bit of a pain during general filming!!! I find that even at 90 I get zebras on a sunny day but that is to warn me about backlighting at weddings
