New modes for the film camera: EL Zone and False Color

EL-Zone and False Color: The Perfect Combination for Precise Video Productions

By popular demand, we have introduced two new modes for our film camera. From now on you can switch the view of the camera and see the image in False Color, or in EL-Zone mode. This allows you to more accurately assess lighting conditions and find the optimal exposure settings for your video footage.

With False Color mode, exposure levels can be visualized using different colors to help you identify over- or underexposures and thus achieve the optimal exposure settings for your video recordings.

EL-Zone Mode is used to achieve precise exposure of shots, especially in situations with complex lighting conditions. The brightness of the subject is fixed to a specific zone of the exposure scale, based on the application of Ansel Adams’ Zone System technique. This allows optimal use of the available light and better control over the tonal range of the film stock to obtain detailed shadows and highlights.

Upload setups with your own 3D content to the set.a.light 3D community

You use the 3D Importer and want to present your setups in the community? This is finally possible!

From now on you can publish setups in which you have used your own 3D objects in the set.a.light 3D community. Your 3D objects will not be uploaded to the community and therefore will not be published. So you don’t have to worry about the legal situation of the objects. Other setalighters can view your work and even download and open the setup – but the 3D objects will be replaced by placeholders (hint signs).

Share your ideas, inspire others and exchange ideas with the community.
