A couple of things here, I tested with everything from nothing to 85B going
through LLD 81EF and 85.
The filtered shots had a greater tolerance to tweaking later, as you would
expect really :-)
The latitude tests that I did, some of those frames are on
www.cinematography.net , showed 9 and 2/3 stops of useable range.
I know that Thomson were/are working on "optimised" filters for daylight and
tungsten. I don't think they realised that people would want to squeeze
every drop of latitude out of the camera.
