Hi,

A couple of questions for seasoned Alexa Mini users:

1. What is the best way to make sure that raw data is not clipping? As i understand it false color and Zebra monitor the selected color output. So if I'm monitoring in REC 709 then False Color isn't showing me the full exposure range of the raw file.
Do people set up a shortcut to change the viewed color space to log C, so that anything clipping there will be clipping in the raw file?

2. Pixel Masking; Assuming that this is to mitigate fixed patter noise, like Red Black shading. Do I need to do this only once or before every shoot? Is it a pain to do? Is FPN an issue with Alev III?

3. Is there a sleep mode on the mini to save power? Is it more power efficient to leave the camera running than urn off and reboot? Obviously this is dependent on the length of the 'breaks' but in general is there a big power hit from rebooting?

Thanks
