We just got our Scarlet back after upgrading it to Dragon status. The increase range and slow motion is great, but the blacks seem noticeably noisy. Anyone else have this going on? We usually shoot at 8:1 red code; am I going to have cut this way back?
If you have the STH OLPF the exposure bias is toward the highlights. So you will notice that the blacks seems slightly noise as with that OLPF the DR move the exposure about 1.5 stops towards the highlights at the expense of the blacks/shadow areas. If you want the same old clean blacks EPIC MX look, then you should use the LLO OLFP $200 from RED. The STH is a bit more like the Alexa in terms of response and you don't have to do as much to protect highlights.
