    Hello guys I was invited to a Beach Party where I had my Monstro at my car. So I decided to give it a try to see how it performs with low light which I was quite impressed. I just had one glass with me at the moment and not a lot of idea of what I wanted to shoot but I hope you guys get a feeling of the camera.

    I was shooting everything at 74 FPS.
    800 ISO
    And between 1.4 and 5.6 in the aperture.

    Cool!! Seems kind of posterized - was that a look? Would love to see a couple R3D's from this session

    Did you use STO OLPF? Why do you shoot so low ISO? Thanks for your link.

    I am sorry but if this is Monstro I am not convinced.
    I hope there is something wrong in post workflow.

    Just not to start the stage ISO discussion, It has little or nothing to do with shooting as it only part of the developing process. Would be great to see it developed on 6400 ISO think it would look quite spectacular with pics black backgrounds and the fire light playing far out in the audience all in slow with still not much noise and most of the highlights covered.

    I would also like to see a R3D. The colors are posterized and the blacks are crushed, the ISO800 doesn't work in this setting. If Monstro is as good as it's proposed, then you should be able to do a ISO6400 with highlight protection at ISO640 in the grade. I would love to see that image.

    Sure, I’ll be happy to upload the R3D files, Ill be uploading 2 clips, bare with since they are 12GB. Again this wasn’t a planned shooting I was just fooling around, with low battery etc.

    It doesn’t have a lot of color grading just a little of IPP2, and the sensitivity of the light was higher than on helium IMHO so I tried to make it darker in some shots.

    Also I used Standard OLPF, and to be really honest, I'm shooting at 74FPS! thats really fast for a beach shot at 12:00 PM. I didn't expected to get so much light in.

    I didn't push it to 6,400 because I wanted a darker image with solid blacks.

    You could do a R3D trim? A second of footage is enough, wide shot with fire and audience in frame :)
