I was told that the exposure latitude for my Rebel T3i is "about 5 stops under middle grey and 4 stops above"
To check my understanding, this means that highlights and shadow areas beyond this range will include loss of detail?
I want to learn how best to use the light meter
Also I am unsure which setting on the "Quality" menu to choose. The photo won't upload which sucks as there are icons....so the menu is:
[pie-wedge shape] L
[stepped version of the pie wedge] L
[pie-wedge icon] M
[stepped version of the pie wedge] M
[pie-wedge shape] S1
[stepped version of the pie wedge] S1
RAW+[pie-wedge shape] L
Is this the same RAW people are always talking about, like with professional cinema cams and BMCC?
Is the L LOG?
I THINK the camera records in H.264 and is converted in FCPX to ProRes for smoother editing and playback...then converted back to H.264 as that is preferred for a deliverable
Thanks, it's important for me to get the terms and concepts straight. Please lemee know if there is a mention of this in another place here on cinematography.com. i didnt see it
I want to get the most out of my little camera.
