Thanks. Yes, I’ve got an LCD but prefer to use my TV as a monitor, as you described, instead of squinting at that little 3 1/2″ screen on the camcorder.

So, it sounds like I’m basically setting exposure by eye based on lighting requirements for the screen and my subject. Would it make any sense to keep the lighting on the screen and subject lower (so as to reduce spill) then increase exposure to compensate for the lower lighting levels?

Will take your advice and try a variety of shots at different settings to determine best results.

Thanks again for the helpful info,
