Just finished up a short. Had a fire scene (went pretty bad generator didn't work, was only able to use one 650 and another for the background, power almost died, etc.) What I'm most worried about is that my flames are going to be this white ball of nothing.

Shot 7219 pushed to 1000. On the face was reading 2/2.8 split, the brightest part of the fired was a f16 reflected =(. I couldn't get the level pumped much more because the light would be in shot. Now it was a rather small fire and our actor was the most important. I know it won't be that nice orange color but I'm hoping I will retain some detail in the flames.

Other parts of the fire read f8 and sometimes 5.6/8 split reflected.

You might be alright, the 19 was designed with more latitude in the over exposure aspect. Both the 18 and 19 respond incredibly well in low situations might have some grain issues where it's extremely dark in frame (those stocks eat up whatever light it can take!) Then again I'm not sure how exactly your composition is set up. but as far as grain it seems since you're pushing a stop I guess grain is something you want.

Plus where you read f16 isn't constant so your fire will clip in and out.
