I'm a new member and new RED user and really excited about this powerhouse of a camera!
From reading around the forum its my understanding that the EPIC has a native ISO of 800 http://reduser.net/forum/showthread....40-Mysterium-X...
Gathering information over the past few days, it seems to me that correct usage of the EPIC can be achieved by proper exposure as No.1 priority, since all else is just META-DATA.
This relies mainly on correct aperture and shutter speed, as ISO, White Balance, and Colour Profiles are all things that can be done in post.
And the question: Can shooting at ISO800 and keeping an eye on the histogram reliably give me a good indication through my monitor of what the sensor is actually picking up?
(it appears new users can be fooled into thinking they have correct exposure because they lowered the ISO setting and looked at a correctly exposed image through the monitor when in fact the sensor was being over exposed therefore killing the highlights)
I hope I'm not asking a very silly question ;)
