Hello everyone. I'm a young cinematographer, freshly graduated form CSC (italian national film and television school)..
As my first real production experience as a Dp i'm shooting a documentary soon.
We're gonna shoot in red (i would try BMC but in Italy there's online one rental with it, EF mount, and as i read there's too much problem with wide lenses because of the dimension of the sensor and no PL mount adapter that really works). Anyway, in this story we will find us many times in some "situations" completely black.
Because we cannot let other see us but i need to see what happens.Take as an example a forest during the night.
Basically what i need is to know if someone could suggest me some nightvision systems to produce night shot that will mantain a "more then decent quality", that couldn't be given by a consumer camera with nightvision options turned on.
I would like also to know if there is a possibility to use red with some Infrared Light mounted on.
Thank you very much to everyone who will answer.
Hope you can help me.
