to create a moody low lit scene .. metering at 0EV would make this "brighter" and lose the mood.
they really put this camera through it's paces .. and looks like they had alot of fun with it (hope they had a few beers here)
Still don't get this one. you are still shooting in minus Exposure comp. -0.67...Why?
I would shoot that shot with at least the same - EV too, to me the light level looks more accurate. Shooting at 0 EV comp might give a brighter shot, but probably not how it actually was.
The left side guitarist is already blown out because of the direct light. Photographer is just trying to prevent a purple-and-white mess; I'd say he barely managed.
This issue is fairly common with direct-light-on-dark-stages scenarios.
worse than G1X?
