So I am the owner of Scarlet #704 which I recently bought from Albert Frates. Whilst I do understand most of the theory of photography I am not a DP and although we do have an Epic on crew I also understand the limitations of scarlet and am therefore just throwing this out there.
We are shooting with this scarlet and with the epic for certain scenes.
Should I be using 2k, 3k, HDRx and how many stops etc...
For general purpose we are using a set of old nikon primes and we also have a newer Canon L glass wide zoom that does work with the mount. We also rent some high speed Zeiss primes from time to time. There is lots of outdoor natural lighting and we have a pair of arri tungsten 1k lamps, warm lighting setup and occasionally a full Grip Trailer.
The overall look of the film is summer heat in Texas. Think Rampart ( I know that was shot on Alexa but the look is what I'm talking about), Bellflower also has a similar 'vintage heat' look. So basically we arent going for the super crisp look most of the time.
Oh and we edit in Avid6.
I know it's probably covered on here elsewhere but I don't see any harm in asking.
