    So I just got my G2 recently and this one one of the first vids I shot with it to test it out. All natural light. I just burnt some stuff on the stove to get some haze in there for the suns rays to show. Shot on my SLR magic APO lenses. Shot wide open.

    Braw 8:1 4k 150fps and 2k 300fps (both in windowed sensor)

    Nice stuff Darren - thought I saw this on your insta the other day and now I know I wasn't hallucinating. The DIY haze is a brilliant idea.

    Just a general question on lighting with natural light like this:

    Say I wanted to get rid of the noise on the front of the bowl in the wides or the noise on the blue/black counter surface in the right of frame. Presumably I'd want to reflect or bounce something in there (maybe flagging it so it doesn't lift the entire area). But wouldn't that flatten the image? It's nice to have that contrast in there but how to expose that as well as the lighter areas using natural light? Would you just take advantage of the DR of the camera, over exposing the lighter sections and then use power windows or something to bring it down in Resolve?

    Thanks peeps. Was a fun exercise.

    Ed in regards to lighting yes you could put more fill (bounce) in there to eliminate the noise but that would be to a point because as you said the contrast is really nice to have. In my case I didn't use have any of that. In an "official" shoot I would. Its all about lighting ratio. In this case I could have chosen to clean this up however I just removed the chroma noise and left the Luma as I liked that noise/grain. Personally I stay away from "re lighting" in post with power windows. I try to get what I want lighting wise in camera.

    Thanks Darren - appreciate you getting back. (Those Atlas tests are also lovely. It's always satisfying seeing good looking, naturally lit footage - gives me hope!).
