So part of this shoot I did friday included an after party at a bar. Here are a couple screen shots, its shocking how much light this camera pulls out of nothing.

I used a nikon 50mm 1.4 @f2 and f2.8 (tight shots, shallow dof, pretty noticable) and a tokina 11-16 @2.8(wider shots, also pretty obvious). I kept my db at 21 and shutter was either 48 or 96 depending on the lens. Please note that it was in a bar/dancing area so the lights were all colored, i kept my WB at 3200K to be consistant. All shot at 1080p24.

Wow! Really is the best nightcamera -

What was your gamma curve?

I've found with the cinematones, they look lovely in daylight but can suck the life out night shots.

I'm imagining 'standard' or '709' ?

love them! How would 21 db translate in ISO? Will you upload the footage somewhere?

God yes this camera is amazing in low light. I have some shots from a very similar situation (with that 50mm 1.4) and it just shocked me.

Ill post some later, although I can not post video either :(.

I love the low light. I also see Ableton Live running on those computers :) Just starting learning that app recently.
