Ok... So the scarlet @ ISO1250-1600 is far grainier than my F3 at ISO12,800.....(in LOG)
So i need to find its base ISO. Testing more today. It seems to be somewhere around 320-500 ISO.
I think the initial image quality is amazing, but im very seriously doing something wrong. The footage i shot looks horrible IMO.... but it looked great in Ryan Koos Film.... I am not a "Post" guy, so im certain its all operator error there.
so after ironing out the workflow, i got the Scarlet just where i like it. Read about it here on my blog, Tstops.
