Hey Guys am starting a feature in a few weeks , shooting with a dragon as our main camera , but we have quite a few days requiring 2 camera's. At the moment the B camera will be a regular epic , has anyone had any problems cutting the two cameras together ?

Have done it successfully, the biggest issue will be lighting. If your Dragon is on OLPF2 you'll be rating it at 250/320 ISO to get it as clean as the MX at 800 ISO.

We done it and rated them the same no issue as long as none of them is showing their noise bar or stoplights.

Edit: we rated both 800iso, to clarify.

I don't get why you'd rate the Dragon at 320/250 if you wanna match with the Epic.

I can see a lot of other good reasons, but matching ain't one of them.
