Anyone know the default/standard ASA/ISO rating for the EX 3 & EX 1 ??
I'm guess it's 320 ????

Hi,

It's between 320 and 640 depending on the curve you choose. Been a while for me, but I remember Cine 2 working out to roughly 400 and Cine 4 roughly 640 -- this of course being at 0db, all other image settings at default.

yeah, I noticed that in various scenarios, the ASA will change....I wanted to meter some lighting, but didn't know the ASA, was wondering if there was a standard for the EX 3 & EX 1 ??
I set my meter at 320, but know it'll change for higher shutter and ND filters.....

I did a ratings test in a cinematography class and found the ISO to be 500 in CINE 3 (which is what I use for indoor and most setups) CINE 1 was rated at 250 (which I use for outdoors an other high contrast environments).

Didn't check with picture profile off cause I always shoot with either CINE3 or CINE1. Sometimes I'll go to CINE4 if it' super low light, guessing it's a 640 or so.

all at 0db of course

I've had my EX3 for almost a year now and love it, great all around camera
