I've been asked for a quote for video lighting for a night-time outdoor gig here in OKC for a potential new client with some deep pockets. What would be a good FC level at 3200K for a Sony 300A, Sony DXC-D30, and a Sony PD 170 working together so that all three were delivering good video? I've got a pile of incandescent Source 4's and 1kW babies to work with.

100fcs is a good level for those cams in what I think sounds like a music event?

Thanks for the help Walter,

It's actually a revival but you're right, music will be involved.

Do a base of 80 FCs up to 100Fcs and that range will cover the three well.

About 25 FC of backlighting sound right to you?
