If you’re a filmmaker wanting to shoot characters at night who also are in motion, you’re going to run into changing light temperatures and light sources, and you need a camera that’s just as flexible and shoots RAW.

Charles was especially interested in working with the new higher ISO setting. That’s because 3200 ISO is useful for night shoots along with night walk and talks.
