In December I will be shooting a dance recital with my HMC150 and of course there will be a fair amount of low light scenes. I am looking for good general settings to record the event. I also have the problem of the dance studios use of red lighting...they use it a lot. Any suggestions on how to deal with this would be really helpful.
I faintly recall finding a camera filter in the past that would help with red colored lighting, but I can not find anything about it now. Anybody have any ideas or if there is such a thing?
I shot a half dozen recitals this last spring with the HMC alongside a DVX100A and a Canon A1. The HMC is a couple of stops darker than my DVX, but it was plenty bright for every recital. The A1 was another couple of stops darker than the HMC, but I was able to push the levels in post and it still looked ok.
The colors matched up pretty well between the DVX and the HMC, although I did make some minor color tweaks in post.
I\'m happy enough with the performance of the HMC that I\'m planning to buy 2 more next spring.
