Shooting Double X 7222 in low light?
Posted 13 April 2012 - 07:52 PM
For my night exteriors, there are streetlights, but how much more light would I need to add. I'd like to use CFLs in Chinese Lanterns. As for night interiors, also want to use CFLs in either chinese lanterns or table lamps. Should I expose it at 200 or 400?
Same question for early morning.
My lens at its fastest is f/2.2 But I'd hope to use it at 4 or even 5.6

Are all your Compact Florescent lamps equipped with a high frequency ballast?
I'm not sure. I am buying ones from Home Depot that are the screw ins for desk lamps; for example a 23-watt (100w equivalent) compact fluorescent bulb. Is that different than CFL? I'm looking at the tech specs on the home depot website. It doesn't say whether or not there is high frequency ballast

Always go for more light. Whatever you have in mind, double it; inside and out. Assuming you are transferring and editing digitally, you want the colorist to have more light to work with. Double X is already grainy, if you don't give it enough light it will be too grainy.
Here's a quick test in 35mm on an Eyemo just natural light...
