I am looking at finally doing a real piece on film and am wondering how well the latitude of some of the film stocks transfer to tape. The shots will all be night shots and I can control the range but would like to blow out some highlights here and there and drop a lot off into shadow. Actually, sounds like I may want to shoot reversal then?
I was thinking about trying 500T. The real question, boiled down is, if I shoot with a wide latitude stock and transfer to DVCam for the edit, am I loosing latitude in that transfer? If so, is it likely to be the top end, bottom end or just compressed? I know it would likely depend on the transfer method. Assume a workprinter or similar.
Best stock to go to TC?
