I want my HD to look like 35mm and I doing an HD finish for television broadcast. I want to shoot 24P. Do you recommend I shoot in Film Record or Video record. My friends seem to be split. Some shoot Film Rec, Some shoot Video some shoot film rec outside and video inside.

In Film REC, you can swing the dynamic range from 200% to 500%. This is a great tool for controling highlights. In video REC, the dynamic range control is disabled.

Film REC gives you more options to control contrast.

Bob,

Film Rec is what I would recommend. As mentioned, the dynamic range controls are a big plus over the video rec settings.

Also if you ever need to use the "black stretch" settings to reach into the shadows a bit more, the film rec mode handles it better (doesn't seem to alter anything but the deep shadows). In the video rec mode "black stretch" seems to affect all aspects of the scene...shadows, mid-tones and highlights...giving the entire scene a washed out appearance. This is just a personal observation based on my experience, others may beg to differ.

Respectfully,

Jeff

bob..

film rec .. give m ore dinamic range at the image.. then you could "get" more details in all the areas of the picture..

But be carefull.,. if you want to work well with you must trust in your meter. The monitor probably show you an under expose image but in pos you must do a gamma correction to work with the complete latitude..
