Above: EOSHD Pro Color 3.0 and Pro LOG comparison shot on the Sony FS5 by Ethan Alexander
These magic settings are a MUST HAVE.
Don’t take my word for it though. I am biased! Other filmmakers and Sony users have been busy shooting with EOSHD Pro Color 3.0 and Pro LOG. It’s interesting to take a look at some of the reviews, tests and films shot this way.
As well as the Sony mirrorless cameras, Pro Color and Pro LOG can also be used on the Sony FS5. Ethan Alexander shot a superb test with his camera, with the emphasis on richly saturated skin tones in both Pro Color 3.0 and the new Pro LOG profile with Film LUTs.
“I can tell you straight off the bat, Pro Log S is going to be one of my go-to [profiles], especially for anything requiring a “beauty” or even just natural look.”
In this video you see a range of rendering, from warm pinkish tones through creamy natural skin-tones to a more olive tone. The more magenta skin tones suit certain people and scenes, and can of course be adjusted in-camera or with the various EOSHD Film LUTs in post. The variation is fully under the control of you, the shooter.
I also enjoyed this fast-paced tour through the beautiful Japan shot on the A6500 and A7R II:
“Every clip was shot using your profile. Honestly – it is a game changer. I have tried everything and I was always fighting with the color in post. This was like magic.”
I’ve also been checking out what has been posted on the EOSHD Forum too. If you’d like me to feature your work on the blog, you can email me or post clips on the EOSHD Forum thread for Pro Color here.
The next video shows the new 3.0 profiles in action – the XR and Deep Warmth variants on the Sony A6500. Version 3.0 also includes the original Pro Color profile, which has a slightly flatter look for a more subtle impact.
The cityscapes look very cinematic here, from the 6K oversampled A6500 image. It could easily have been shot with an F35!
There is a far more Canon-like look to the camera with Pro Color compared to the clinical Sony look.
