I will try to get in contact with someone at ARRI this week.
I am assuming the meter is to be used while the motor is stopped? Or does the shutter need to be moving for an accurate reading?
Please excuse my ignorance on this, motion picture (film) is very new to me. Any additional info regarding APEC on a 16s would be very helpful, keeping in mind I am pretty much throwing myself into the fire here as far as making films goes..
A sort of related question... I have a laser display I have built that I make analog vector graphics with. I am looking to shoot the graphics with the ARRI. Does anyone have any advice as to how I would go about setting my exposure/aperture properly for this task? I guess I am mostly wondering if such a high contrast ratio, thin and defined lines, might be a pain to effectively measure using APEC, or any light meter for that matter? So far I am not having any conflicts with the laser display and shutter speed at 24fps while looking through the viewfinder.
Maybe my second question is for another forum/thread. I haven't had time to explore the culture of this message board thoroughly, so my apologies if this is off topic.
