Hi, can anyone tell me when and why you should shoot a grey scale or a Macbeth colour chart, and if this applies to both video and film ?

On film for the color timer doing dailies, and later on when you're working on the DI to get things looking right. On video, often to paint multiple cameras to have them "see" similarly. On D-Cinema, same idea, for the timing of the dailies etc. Also useful for testing purposes when doing special processing.
