Dynamic Range: Velvia 50, Ekatachrome E100G, E200 and Provia 400X
So, I'm going to do some shooting with Velvia 50, E100G, E200 and Povia 400X. (All films in production as of February 2011...) I need to take some pictures of "white masks" in bright light, so I need to know the dynamic range of the films to avoid burned highlights.
I managed to have time to make a zone exposure test for Velvia 50 and E200. I tested 11 differnt exposures 0 to 10, setting 5 as the base meter reading. I used 3 different lenses: Summicron-M 35 ASPH, Color-Heliar 75 and Summilux-M 50 ASPH.
Does anybody know, if E100G has approximately the same exposure lattiude as E200? This would save me burning a roll of film for a test! :D Also, I suppose that Velvia 50 and Provia 400X are so different that there's now way around avoding a test, or? ...
Thanks for any feedback you may have in advance! I took my film in for development today, so I'll post next weekend the results in a different thread!
