I'll be shooting a full lunar eclipse with the EX1 in China in a couple weeks and was wondering if anyone has any advice to share? I've tried shooting the moon before and haven't quite gotten it right yet, so the eclipse is an added challenge. Would be grateful for any advice!
A suggestion from another "tester".
1. Do not use Full Auto Mode!
2. Gain 0dB
3. 1080/25p or 30p
4. use a Picture Profile.
5. White Preset White: 6500K
6. Detail Setting On, Level +10
7. Gamma Level -4, Select CINE2
8. Black -3
rem1: p7 I haveused Cine2 a lot and found it very good for sunny weather. The auto iris do not work with cine2. you have to use the historgram and brightness display.
rem2: p8 Black -3 On my EX1 fully closed iris gives +3% exposure!
rem4: For sunny days I use no ND, shutter 1/2000s and iris 4-5.6! It gives a strobe effect but every frame is rasor sharp.
But that was for other scenes in China!
