As I continue to learn the Red-One, I have noticed that the RAW Level Meter can be misleading as far as exposure is concerned. If there is a lot of black or white in the scene, it will read over or underexposed while the exposure on the monitor is perfect and exactly what I want.
In the "old days" of film I used a Spectra Incident Meter and NEVER, EVER used the in-camera reflective meter (even if it had one). The best and most accurate exposures were always obtained via the Incident Meter. But, of course, the Red-One is different. So, I just want to make sure I expose the sensor correctly.
So, should I go with the RAW Meter regardless of how it looks on the monitor, or ignore the meter and expose via the "look" of it on the monitor, as long as it does not show up in the RAW Clip Meter? Or, a combination of both?
For those of you who have much more experience with this camera than I do, I would appreciate your feedback and thoughts on this. Especially if you've had lots of experience shooting in the field under contrasty conditions.
Thanks for your time.
