I shot 350ft of Kodak 7217 (200EI) but I metered it at 250 EI. Should I get this roll pushed a stop?

I also shot a roll of 8663 Eterna 250D indoors, is the color going to be off that much? Can it be fixed in post?

Thanks!

It's just a 1/3 of a stop underexposure. Pushing one stop is not necessary. Unless you want the "pushed" look.

As for the daylight stock shot "indoors", what was the light like ? Was it day in ?

You see it's not a question of outdoors/indoors, it's a question of source temperature. You could be outdoors with tungsten light at night or indoors with daylight...

laurent.a:

Thanks for the pushed info.

The daylight fuji stock 8663 was shot indoors at night with an omni, DP and tota...and a few house lights. Lighting is a weak area for me...which I guess would include checking things like EI too. I need to develop that OCD quality if I want to work in this field.

Right...

Well, the image will turn very orange/yelow like. You will see further up what you can do in post, by now, but the best will be to keep a bit of it, not to correct totally that cast, I think.

Both problems can be fixed in post if it's a good telecine. A 1/3 stop of underexposure is within the latitude of '17. In the future definitely stay on top of this stuff for optimal quality.

Every cinematographer except me has made these kinds of mistakes. I never make any mistakes. Only one man makes less mistakes then me?
