Sony A7 Series Lenses Guide

The best settings for video on the A7R II – this Setup Guide was created by filmmaker Andrew Reid for other video users to quickly get up to speed with a new and unfamiliar camera on set. Written for both professionals and enthusiasts alike, even for people who have never shot 4K video before.

The guide also comes with a ‘special sauce’ workflow for getting better colour out of the Sony A7R II in 4K video mode. In addition to my LUTs for A7R II S-LOG I have created a special in-camera picture profile based close to Canon LOG on the 1D C and a LUT for this flat picture profile. This is an exciting alternative to S-LOG 2. You can see EOSHD CINEFLAT in action on the A7R II below:

The guide details my revised settings for picture profile 6 so you can more easily grade footage without the need for a LUT. This is a great S-LOG alternative plus it allows you to shoot at ISO 200/400 whereas S-LOG 2 is limited to a minimum of ISO 800
