Hi All,

I have 2 rolls of 16mm and 2 rolls of Super 8 in 50D. I figure this is probably the perfect film stock for the doomsday storm we are about to get here in the greater Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts/southern New Hampshire.

Anyone have any good tips for exposure in snow storms and then after the storm?

My Canon 814 XL-S has some pretty amazing exposure control. I figure I'll probably just let it roll.

What you all think?

Filming During the storm is usually easy. The sky will be filled with clouds, not sunlight. Take an average reading, and let it go.

Afterwards, you'll probably need ND filters to filter out glare from the snow.

i am in boston as well and am getting ready to shoot some fuji s16. I would like to see how the v3 50D handles highlights in super 8. I have seen how good it or the 01 digs into shadows. the high constrast after the storm should be a good test.

The biggest test will be to find a good enough scanner to get all that detail off the film. I'm sending out some more tests this week to see if I can find a really good 2K Super 8 Scanner. Here's hoping!

A kinetta Scanner would be nice - 3.3K of resolution - Perfect to capture all the information. HD telecine isn't enough for that.
I will try a 4K Super16 scan of V3 50D this month.
Does anyone know a company in Europe which purchased a new Kinetta scanner?
