Contrast handling in a real world test - Alexa - BMCC 2.5 - 1DC - C500 - Epic - F55 - F65

Subject and charts were lit balanced to background in the first shot of each sequence, the light on them was then reduced in one stop increments and the exposure adjusted for the foreground.

The files were all shot at maximum resolution of the cameras and inpit to Resolve 10 using the RAW settings reccomended by the manufacturers.

Output was scaled to HD res in DPX form, no corrections/alterations of any kind have been made.
