I am doing an exterior short film near Death Valley in a few weeks (shooting on 4-perf anamorphic). I am trying to decide if my storage of 5219 (with an 85) will do the job. I am worried that 5219 will be too grainy/saturated for exterior daylight (even on 4-perf). I am going for a slightly desaturated color palette.

 

Have anybody tried shooting 5219 on an exterior daylight? Comments on grain/saturation? Will I benefit greatly from shooting 5207 or 5213 with an 85 on it? I am planning to carry 5219 for sunrise/sunset shots.

 

Thanks.

i had shot 5218 anamorphic in day because we ran out of 250D. optically colour corrected it. 

when we ran the test print - it looked ok. not too much discernible difference. yes the skies won't be that blue :-)

I find the '19 to have a very tight grain structure on the whole, and in anamorphic you'll be even a bit better off. I think the real question is how much of that small detail in in the background you're going to be worrying about. But if it puts your mind at ease, the '13 might be a better choice-- less ND in the lens to worry about so you may be able to actually see through the VF a bit, tighter grain, and can certainly survive the slightly more than a stop under-exposure if you need to rate it at 500 when you loose light.
