So we're grading my last short today and I thought I'd post a great example of the extreme latitude of Red footage and how you can get a shot back to correct exposure and grading with Redcine-X...

Here's a split picture of a take we shot late in the afternoon without any lighting, and it had to match shots done the previous day early in the morning.

You can see on the original (top left side) how dark it was getting then, and how well the result is on the graded version (bottom right side) with just a lil' RX tweaking:

Yea, I totally agree. So much discussion is generally hardware related. But the New Color Science has totally knocked the ball out of the park.

And that was shot with the "old" sensor... :thumbsup:

I can only imagine how insane it will be with the new MX sensor...

I love my RED!
