I am shooting a band performance at a fairly small venue. I'll be shooting it with a Canon 1014xls and a Canon 518 as a B camera, and i'll also have a safety shot with a hd canon with a 35mm adapter. I just recently purchased a light meter, but won't be able to measure any of the light until tomorrow night.

I was wondering if anyone was aware of the latitude of Vision 2 500T. Does anyone know how many stops underexposed i can shoot and still get a decent image? And as far as underexposing the shot and still getting an image goes, would the same go for Vision 2 200T?

And one last question, this is my first time combining audio with super 8... and was wondering how long i can shoot at 24fps (non-crystal sync) and still be somewhat in sync.


And any other tips would be highly appreciated!

Thanks-

Nicholas

Underexposed with V2 500T? Dude, I'd be more worried about overexposing with that camera with that film!

I shot a night concert on K40 with a similar camera, and it came out. You'll do fine. Just set it on the widest apeture, and let it roll!

*edit*

Dude, you're in my neck of the woods. Need an extra hand, not doing anything tonight.

Sync can be an issue, but if you tweak it in FCP/Premiere it can be fudged.

Hey man, if you live in orlando and would like to help, that would be awesome.

The show is downtown at a club 'backbooth' Band starts at 9, i'll be there most of the day.

i might not be able to check the internet, so here is my cell:

248-974-4343

I am also in need of an audio recorder, so if you have anything... camera etc. i could really use it.

Thanks-

Nicholas

I've done tons of filming of bands in small clubs with S8 500T, 814XLS. Small stages can be a tough gig for film, even 500T. Most every show i stayed at f1.4, don't worry about over exposing. You stop down and risk underexposure in most cases. Even the occasional bright flashes handle just fine with the 7218.

Ok, I thought it was last night. Have to work tomorrow else I would. Dammit. Next time let me know ahead of time and I'll rearrange. I do actually own a NAGRA setup, so can do audio as well.
