I'll be shooting night time exteriors next month using Kodak Vision 2 500T. I'm lighting with tungsten, but the location has prominent flourescent and neon bulbs. Does any one have any recomendations for filtration, or should I wait to solve those problems in telecine? I'm using the Canon 1014 XLS which acccepts 67mm screw in filters. Since it's night time should I be using the internal 85 filter? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

You won't need an 85 filter! The flourescent lamps will have a green spike. You could filter the tungsten with + Green if you want to get a clean look in telecine. If you don't mind a green tint leave it as it. A test is always a good !

Mixed colors actually look quite nice for night exterior scenes.

I agree with David , mixed lighting at night looks great . Most cities have all sorts of colour lighting ( Sodium Vapour , Flo tubes etc ) at night , which is what can make a night scene look so good . Check out Lost in translation , that as some great mixed lighting photography.
Also most modern colour neg film works very well under mixed lighting conditions , test if you can .

Thanks for the info guys. It sounds like I may have done a lot of work in error to avoid some pretty interesting lighting. I appreciate it.
