Newbie to the red. Was wondering how most people set their stop with the camera. Do you treat it just like a film stock and set everything/get your lens stop with your light meter? Or do more people go with the histogram and predator mode to set their stop?

Thanks

I follow the histogram and make my final decision with the help of the traffic lights. The red prefers a slight overexposure to underexposure as it can generate alot of noise if pushed in the one light.
