Which stock should I use?
Posted 07 October 2007 - 01:43 PM
I recently did tests with Kodak Vision2 200T using similar lighting equipment, and I had to shoot between a f2 and f4 the entire time, and it still had a dark feeling to it. I have not got the chance to test Vision2 500T (we have to use Kodak, its a requirement), but I feel like I will need to use it to get the exposure that I want. This said, I am concerned about grain (which I DO NOT want). Any suggestions about making 200T work? should I even be concerned about the 500T being too grainy? Any suggestions would be appreciated!

200T is a great stock, butt when you're going to be dealing with a low-light situation, the 500 is probably a better choice to work faster and easier (after all, the last thing you'd want to be saddled with would be a law office with one 15A breaker!)

I was so nervous about videotaping in a law office I just went with their built in ceiling lights and one of my own battery operated lights.
Things that could go wrong include tripping a fuse and a computer goes down and they claim they lost critical data, or the sprinklers come on because of a smoky light and it ruins court documents that are in the vicinity. Over paranoid perhaps, but considering who the client is, maybe not.
