When should I use Standard Mode and when should I use Low Light mode?
The EPIC-W 5K S35 offers two (2) Sensor Sensitivity modes:
- Standard: Use in normal shooting conditions in which you would expose near ISO 800. Provides the best highlight retention.
- Low Light: Use in lower light conditions in which you would expose for ISO 2500 and higher. Provides the cleanest shadow detail.
Is the Sensor Sensitivity mode just metadata that is adjustable in post production?
No, the Sensor Sensitivity mode is not metadata. Each mode affects the RAW data, and is “baked-in” as image data in the recorded file. However, the ISO setting is still captured as metadata and can be adjusted in post production.
Is IPP2 enabled in EPIC-W 5K S35?
Yes, EPIC-W 5K S35 ships with IPP2 enabled.
