So I just finished my first Red project, a short film in which I was Producer and DP. I spent a good day with the camera getting to know all the menus and features and felt fairly comfortable with it by shoot day. Now that I'm finished with editing and color-correction, I just have a few questions about the shooting side.
First question is about the ISO settings. I had a few problematic shots when I got to post, and one of them was a daytime shot in which I changed the ISO in camera to 100. What exactly does that do? it seemed to expose properly but when I got it to post, it looked more like I had overexposed and then pulled the gain down, so everything in the highlight range was washy and had lost a bit of detail. Maybe I actually over-exposed, and didn't realize it, but is there a difference between changing the ISO before shooting and after shooting? I know that the camera only has a little play with over/under exposure, so I'm a little confused about the ISO settings and the differences of pre and post shooting.
The other question I have is the monitoring options. What's the best way to monitor, Redspace or RAW? Redspace seemed to look more like I would want it to in the end, but what would be the benefits of monitoring in RAW?
