Don't overexpose the hell out of it. You have +6 stops in reflectivity from your chosen exposure before the shoulder iirc (it should show you on the tech sheet).

You want lots of foreground detail? Or a golden sun disc with everything sihouetted?

Also is this going to be a time lapse?

If i remember you are shooting this in here in the UK ? If so how can you know you will get a sunrise and not just grey cloud . You may have to included a digital sun as well .

Why are you shooting a background plate for digital matte painting on 16mm?

When I was shooting some S-16mm with 7201, just as the first light comes through it's already 5.6/180/25 then need a heavy ND soon after.

And I wasn't shooting the sky into the sun.
