ex-1 sensitivity

Page 126 of the manual states that the EX-1 has a sensitivity of f10 in 1080 60i mode Would the sensitivity be the same in other modes?

OK thanks eva. He says it has a latitude of ten stops. I guess that applies to any mode. I had wondered if it may be different in other modes.

Anyway I can set my light meter to iso 400. I thought 320 although not much difference. Pretty amazing stuff all this. Especially for filming in low light its brilliant. Just turned the shutter off took a meter reading about 3 footcandles in the room and the picture was exposed fine. Amazing the camera can see better than me!

Agree Mark. It's very clean in lowlight. I've shot between mostly between -3DB and 0DB. Only in very dark circumstances did I go to 3 or 6 DB - and the picture is still very clean.

The cool thing is that you don't loose light on zoom either. My Z1U used to do that. Not to mention the lack of HDV artifacts, soft cornors and occasionaly muddy dark areas.

It's a great tool!
