    MX Sensor

    Thank you. Also it seems like a lot of people tend to shoot with it at 800 outside. It just seems hard to wrap my mind around shooting at such a high ISO in daylight.

    MX Sensor

    Does a light meter now give you the correct exposure when using the new MX? So if the meter is set to 800 or 640 ISO (etc) and the camera is at either 800 or 640 the reading your meter will get will be the correct lens stop? I know most digital cameras its good to get ratios and make things...

    Daytime Sun Backlight

    I just shot a short film on 16 (7205). I ran into a really big contrast problem. We were shooting on a beach and it was a real bright sunny day and I found at some times to be reading a 4 stop difference between the background and the shadow side of the character (they were backlit). I didn't...
