I plan to finish off a music video with a fireworks display. I'll be shooting on V3 500T 7219.

Does anyone have any experience with this? or any immediate tips? an estimated f-stop?

Hopefully I'll have a spot meter to take a quick reading before it all starts, but I'm already assuming its gonna be pretty bright.

Thanks.

Depends on the camera you're using. On my Chinon 1206SM I'd be g etting around f5.6 while with my Chinon 200/12XL it would be f8.

I'll be using a reflex Bolex, 16mm, if that helps anyone with ideas
