Hello, beginner here wondering if anyone could offer some advice on shooting on my Super 8 GAF 65 Auto Zoom indoors...
So this camera has a built in exposure metre, which is displayed by a red triangle in the corner of the viewfinder. When the light is good enough, this triangle recedes and when the triangle is up all the way then the conditions are not suitable for filming - at least according to its instruction booklet.
Naturally, this triangle is gone completely in the daylight, but is fully present in any sort of artificial lighting. Even with a LED 5600K lighting the scene, this still doesn't seem to be good enough. My problem is, what I need to film can't possibly be filmed outdoors but no indoor bulbs or light assistance is apparently sufficient for this.
My question is, can I risk just lighting it as best I can and giving it a go, or would the results definitely be unusable? I am not against upping the contrast digitally afterwards, but of course I don't want it underexposed to the point where that would simply be unworkable. I am using Kodak EKTACHROME 100D Color Reversal film, which I have never used before, so I don't know to what extent I should account for that as well. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
