I've checked out previous posts on shooting LCD screens and have pretty much worked out that I should be OK with any flicker problems unless I'm very unlucky. Will be shooting 25fps.

My question is to how to correctly expose the screen. I have a spot meter. Am I correct in saying that a direct spot meter reading off the screen will give the correct reading to put the screen in a Zone V (middle grey tone)? Should it be brighter than this...say a Zone VI? Therefore I open up one stop on the meter reading?

I will be shooting a plasma screen next week. Any suggestions there? I don't have a variable frame rate controller, so will have to shoot 25fps. I'm in Australia, so it is on 50Htz.

Thanks.
