      I own one still, used to have three.   here's some things I shot on it:       It's a really great camera, has built in XLRs, I really like slog1 and sgamut - and man for the price, it's a great deal. Is it better than the canon 1dx which is probably now cheaper at the same price? Or the blackmagic MCC or pocket? That's where you need to do some testing. Check motion, color, etc. I think at this point a rigged out BMPCC with a nice monitor maybe a good alternative too. If you need the extra resolution. Anyway it's any interesting time to be alive.          
    • NX1 screenshots, graded with filmconvert
      looks very nice, what is your verdict on it? ..imstill yet to see any footage on it by anybody. I really want to see filmconvert get some professionally shot footage that really sells it, like they have done for other profiles.Im still on the fence for purchasing filmconvert, as money is tight at the moment. but my arm could be twisted
    • Canon XC10 versus Sony RX10 III. The Canon is underrated!
      Thanks. I’m using DaVinci Resolve on my desktop and AE 5.5 on my laptop. ‘Binoculars’ was graded in Resolve and ‘ungraded C-log’ in AE, but the setup I use is the same and could be used in any NLE. In AE I use Adjustment layers, as if I had the nodes you can find in Resolve. First three nodes are my basic setup, second set of nodes I use to color grade. The middle node of the first set is always the curve of the profile the footage was shot in. The two other nodes are used to balance low middle high. From Left-to-Right: 02, 01 C-log2_180, 03
      ACABADABRA… the middle node could probably just as well be a simple S-curve or something, but for some reason when I use the 180 degrees rotated curve of the profile the footage was shot with, the first and third node curve “keep close” to their initial shape. Come to think of it, al those  curves have more or less the same shape  (C-log2 and CineD are almost identical (if you fit them in a square)) so no wonder it fits my workflow First node (04) second set is usually just the red and blue curve adjusted to my likings in the lower left corner in this case I manipulated middle and top as well.
      Second node (05) is a correction on the previous node. Dragging those curves can make you do over the top things. My favorite tool for this is the RGB mixer or Channel mixer (in AE). I start with the Blue-Blue channel. Just touching it makes you aware if there is any need to shift in the blues. I then do the same with the Red-Red, if it looks weird you know you don’t have to use that channel. I hardly ever touch Green-Green, but I realize now that I hardly ever touch the green curve in the previous node , there might be some correlation. When the “masters” are done I continue with the minions, Blue-Red Blue-Green etc.
      By this time I’m completely colorblind and tend to look at some other picture on my HD to compare with what I have done so far. In this case I added a third node to add some contrast, I then called it a day. However you can go crazy and keep adding nodes as there is no end to color grading.
    • Canon 1Dc $4,999
      Seems a strange move to discontinue the only DSLR with c-log and replace it with one without.... Fingers crossed something happens with firmware.... I'm simply not buying any Canon products unless they have c-log (or get hacked). DR is very important to me.
