I may be shooting something in July (assuming the script pans out) and it takes place in a hookah lounge. Not sure on the specifics if there will actually be hookah-ing going on, or if we can simulate it, but meeting with the director soon and want to be prepared with questions/concerns.
I'd likely be shooting with a Sony FS100 and if we're in there for a whole day of shooting, would the smoke be bad for the sensor? I'm less worried about the lens, but still worried (Zeiss CP.2, and I know they're at least built somewhat well, just not sure if they can deal with that factor)
Or am I better off going in with a weather-sealed DSLR to mitigate effects of smoke?
I'd love to rent and, sadly I guess, let someone else work with cleaning it, instead of damaging my own stuff and incurring that expense, but I don't think there will be a budget for renting.
Also, wasn't sure on what category this should go into. So, sorry, dumped it here haha
