Earlier this month, long-time Abel client Daniel Dacian of BigAppleFilms shot some nice low-light tests using Arri Master Primes and Hawk Anamorphics on their RED Mysterium-X. They used only the light they found, with the exception of one Litepanel (the video says it is a Litepanels Micro, but it is actually a Litepanels Mini Flood) to give some fill for the exteriors. The shoot starts out in Brooklyn Bridge Park, then moves indoors for more tests, the only light coming from a half dozen lit candles. Abel’s own Gregger Jones assisted on the shoot, and you can find the full video here: www.bigapplefilms.com/lowlight.html
