This is a video from the RED102 series. It's a BASIC look at exposure and what to watch for. Of course there are a lot more at www.RED102.com
Hope you enjoy!
Good video. Thanks. Your point about "potential" noise with shooting blacks, and often wanting blacks, was very well made I thought.
I'm confused that you say to ETTL in the video? I thought best practice was ETTR as you get more information out of the top third of the sensor? (But of course take care not to clip.)

RED cameras are known for pulling info out of shadows, but not in the case of clipping. I say in every video these are SUGGESTIONS. It all depends on what you are shooting.. But it is true that if your clipped areas of the sensor will be next to impossible to pull info out of.
Also remember the whole point of that video: The histogram is NOT your sensor, so you need to take care working with what you see vs what you are actually recording on the SSD. Using an external recorder would mean you care ONLY about the histogram.
Hope this helps
You are an extraordinary educator and I thank you.
Yes exactly.. There are MANY situations where I will be far more aggressive when pushing to the right, such as in a shot where my exposure does not change while shooting. Or a rehearsed shot where I know exactly how much it will peak.. But in shots where there is some movement I cannot always predict in terms of lighting, I try to give myself some headroom for safty. I love how I can push my EPIC without noise (Within reason of course) but I don't like trying to save a blown element.
To add one more thing, experts rarely need my videos! :) So if you are starting out, or not completely comfortable with how a RED works, it's best to start off exposing a little to the left, and move over as you improve and become more comfortable.
