Bungalow: extreme low light, Speed Booster 50mm f/1.4

Thanks, all handheld.  ISO was usually at 1600 or 3200.  I kept the contrast set at 0 - this hides the ugly, compressed noise that the 5n generates at high ISO values, and attributes more shades of grey to the midtones.

 

It was really dark in that place and I'm amazed I got such a usable image.  I would love to get my hands on a FS100 + Speed Booster and film a black cat on a coal field at midnight at new moon.

Contrast at 0 is default, it ranges form -3 to +3 (I'm trying to remember..)

3200 ISO and such low noise.. incredible.. did you use some noise removal in post?

Nice footage, I love the Speed Booster... the whole concept keeps amazing me even after it's been out for a while. Can't wait to get my hands on a M43 version :)

 

But... iso 1600/3200 @ f/1 equivalent is not completely dark imo. A f/1.2 lens on a speedbooster (@ f/0.9) on a FS100 @ iso 12.800 by moonlight on a cloudy day, that would be dark ;) Would love to see that.

No noise removal in post. The thing I've learned about Sony cams is that keeping the contrast at 0 results in very little visible noise, even at ISO 3200.  Decreasing contrast in-camera seems to lift not just shadows but increase chroma noise, even once I've applied an S-curve in post. And I haven't found that there's any increase in shadow detail by reducing in-camera contrast.  So there's no point to it.

 

So the trick is to get as close as possible your final look in-camera when shooting high ISO's, and keep the contrast at 0.

The discussion around contrast, saturation, sharpness and the Creative styles (portrait, standard and sunset) seems to lead to the point that in the end there's no real gain in tweaking the camera differently from the standard setting.

 

I'd be glad to know your opinion about my short "Fusilli", posted in this forum section.

 

cheers!

      HI there, shot the above promo for a documentary we are making. 99.9% done on the JVC LS300. Settings on JVC were J LOG, UHD, Samyang lenses and Atomos Shogun.
      Editing on Adobe Premiere
      If you exclude the flimsy build quality we think it does produce a great image for the money.
      cheers
