During our takes, everything looked great. But should I expect to see something different in the printed negative? Ex: overexposure, underexposure?
Or do you get what you saw on the monitor during shooting?

Sorry for putting this topic in the wrong forum

Hello,
Monitors from a film camera's video tap are NOT a reliable way to judge exposure, if you are shooting on a digital format and have a well calibrated monitor you can judge exposure from that, for film cameras the only way to judge exposure is to use a light meter.
Cheers.

Video taps aren't good at judging exposure, but a simple Polaroid or digital camera test should give you a pretty accurate idea of what kind of exposure information is being recorded on the camera stock, assuming of course you use the same ISO setting.
