I rented a Red Monstro 8K cinema camera for a recent short film. I used Arri Master Anamorphics for a 2.40:1 finish, so my settings were 8K 6:5, 4:1 compression at about T8 mostly.

I also tested the Sony Venice for this project, since both of them are good cameras for low light. Overall, till ISO 3200, they are pretty much similar. At ISO 6400 the Sony Venice is definitely better, and it has great IRND filters that retain color information all the way up. Still, I picked the Monstro for reasons explained in the video.
