Thanks for the replies!
The song is white satin - zeds dead, if you want a link shoot me a message. My friend was saying how his car looks like crap next too his and that's saying slot cause the S5 is no ugly/slow car to start out with. I'm feeling a gtr/gt3's mash up soon.

Yeah I know man! I feel so spoiled and if you told me last year if I would be shooting GT3's, R8's, S5's, S8's, Ferrari's ect ect I would just laugh Do you mean exposure as audience or camera exposure? Cause if you have any hints to bring Activ to the next level please share!

I see what you mean, some were over exposed for sure, but my excuse is the light was extremely harsh, I know everyone says that but it is valid I believe. But I am open if you have some suggestions for the color correction process because we are still very new to the CC process

Heres a well exposed shot to make up for it

no excuse for harsh light. i've properly exposed the clouds in a perfect sky while everyone in the shadow of a tree was perfectly exposed as well. with a canon dslr nonetheless.

i only said that because his gear listed included an FX1000 and i'm not sure what its files are like since i've never used one.

if you're shooting video with these canon's, i highly recommended using the Technicolor profile. super amazing with dynamic range.

The FX1000 is Sony (info here) The problem is, is that I took our "custom" picture profile before this shoot because I was shooting indoor's instead of outside and forgot to switch it back. But I feel like the exposure wasn't terrible in this film? Obviously it could be much better...

And I'm pretty sure the 5d has better range than the fx1k. I'll make sure to use the "Technicolor profile" when be make the switch to the 7d/5d in the coming months. Thanks for the info.
