Tech talk about lighting:
This church presents quite difficult lighting conditions, better when the sun shines, but artificial lighting is inadequate for winter and evenings.
For our recording of the 2016 Advent concert – Joseph Haydn’s “Lord Nelson Mass” we rented two identical Sony cameras with 1″ sensors, wider angle lens, and supposedly better low-light performance. The result was that the cameras still operated at close to maximum gain, although with improved background image noise levels – when viewed at FHD the result is quite smooth – albeit still rather dark.
We had better success with some temporary lighting installed in the organ gallery (16 halogen spots) or a Japanese concert in September 2017; and even better as we used 24 halogen spots for the Christmas Oratorium, 2018.
