Hi everybody!

I have an upcominc shoot, half documentary half fiction.
Most of it will take place in mountains with lot of snow.

I´m just wondering if there is some kind of tip you could give me about some special camera settings to get the snow have a nice white without clipping or something similar...

thanks for your help

More than anything else I would suggest a Polarizing filter. I have used both the HDX and HPX 900, and it has a powerful setting menu, but the strength in a situation with lots of snow and highlights would be a polarizing filter, especially with good glass. I would also work with the gamma settings to find the best preset for handling highlights, a notorious weak point of digital imagers.
