Best aperture for a Lens
on Oct 28, 2018 at 8:01:52 am

I've been using camera side tools to check exposure (Zebras, False Color, gray card, etc.) which are all designed to not overexpose the sensor. At a camera talk/demo someone mentioned that their challenge was getting the lens set to it's best aperture. A lens has an aperture which offers the sharpest picture and best color.

To me that sounds like a conflict. Aperture being to best tool to adjust exposure.

How do you juggle those potentially conflicting requirements?

I'm looking to listen any experience people have or any good articles references.

I have searched and there are articles about the best aperture for a lens but I've not found any that discuss how that is used on set to get the best pictures.
