Re: Should Proper Zebra Level Look Overexposed in the Monitor?

thanks for the advice. no doubt I have a lot to learn. mostly shooting documentary run and gun, so no lights, and have to have a lot of flexibility and speed. thought setting lower limit to 95% and skin to 70% +1 would get me in the ballpark, and i think it did, but as I mentioned, at 95% it looked washed out in camera (but not as bad on mac) and 70% on skin was way to washed out to be right, so took the exposure down.

Note, my aim was to overexpose 2/3 to 1 stop for HLG3, and where I got the 70% from, but now I'm more confused than before.

What should 18% grey be for HLG 3 and what should it be for 2/3-1 stop over exposed?

Will def. look into Davinci.
